Students interested in winning a fellowship or travel grant for the next calendar year, or funding the commercialization of their research or ideas, are encouraged to apply to Georgia Tech’s annual graduate research showcase.
Abstracts for this year’s Georgia Tech Research & Innovation Conference (GTRIC), which will take place Feb. 11-12, 2012, are now being accepted. Information about the conference and instructions for submitting abstracts may be found online from Graduate SGA. The deadline for submission is Tuesday, Oct. 16.
As in the past, the conference has both a research presentation and an innovation component. There are significant prizes for the winning research posters: five $5,000 one-year fellowships for PhD students and up to 30 grants (up to $1,500 each) supporting student travel to professional meetings. The Institute of Paper Chemistry also will provide a first and second place prize of $10,000 and $5,000 respectively for research related to paper chemistry.
The innovation component, sponsored by the Enterprise Innovation Institute, offers the opportunity to win the $15,000 Edison Prize that supports commercialization of the innovation.
Additional dates and requirements for submission are available from the graduate Student Government Association at www.sga.gatech.edu/graduate/GTRIC.
