CUPC Student Travel Awards


The CINP is making available five student travel awards to the Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC), being organized this year by Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS on October 13-16, 2016. Each award will be for up to $500.00 towards student travel expenses.

Faculty or associate level CINP members who are supervising an undergraduate enrolled at a Canadian university on a nuclear physics research topic are asked to apply for the travel award on behalf of their student. The application package should consist of:
- copy of the student's submitted abstract to the CUPC.
- 2 page CV including the student's research experience, physics grades from the most recent 2 years of study, and career goals.

The conference registration deadline is 12pm (Atlantic) September 22.
The CINP support application deadline is 9am (Central) September 23.
While the grant will be awarded before the conference to facilitate travel, the payment will be released only after submitting original receipts following the end of the conference. Examples of eligible expenses are: conference registration fees, flight tickets with original boarding passes, taxi/bus fares, gas and mileage, hotel accommodation, meals.

Inquiries and completed application packages should be sent to:
