The Canadian Institute of Nuclear Physics is a formal organization of the Canadian nuclear physics research community to promote excellence in nuclear research and education, and to advocate the interests and goals of the community both domestically and abroad.
The Canadian Institute of Nuclear Physics (CINP) is making available a graduate student travel award to the Canadian-American-Mexican (CAM) Graduate Student Physics Conferece. This is a biennial conference, cycling between locations in Mexico, the USA, and Canada. The 2017 CAM conference will be held Aug 17-19 in Washington DC, USA. The conference website is at: https://www.aps.org/units/fgsa/meetings/cam.cfm
The award will be for up to $500 towards student travel expenses. Students must be enrolled in graduate studies at a Canadian university and performing research in experimental or theoretical nuclear physics. The application package should consist of:
* application form, available at http://cinp.phys.uregina.ca/node/171 filled in by both student (Part A) and supervisor (Part B).
* copy of the student's conference registration and abstract for a talk or poster at CAM.
* 2 page CV summarizing the student's research experience, scholarships or other awards received, and career goals.

The conference abstract submission deadline is April 28. The application deadline for a travel award is May 1, 2017.
