CUPC Student Travel Awards

The CINP is making available four student travel awards to the Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC), being organized this year by the University of Alberta in Edmonton, AB. Please note that the conference this year is being held in the summer: August 15-18, 2018. 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 Monday, July 16. The CINP support application deadline is noon (MDT) Saturday, July 14. Please make your students aware of this opportunity.

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:
Garth Huber
CINP Executive Director
