Mettler Toledo Scholarship (formerly Perkin Elmer)
The Mettler Toledo Scholarship sponsors a two-part award presented yearly by the Composites Division of the Society of Plastics Engineers. It is open to undergraduate and graduate students. At the time of application, master’s students must be in the first year of their program and doctoral students must be in the first two years of their program.
The winner is selected based on a 250-word abstract describing their composites research. This abstract must be written by the student and is judged by a panel of industry representatives. In the first year, the recipient receives a $1000 (USD) scholarship award and a plaque, presented at ANTEC. To be eligible for the second $1000 installment, the research described in the winning abstract must be presented in a paper at ANTEC the following year. Procedures for submitting papers to ANTEC will be found on the SPE International Website. The winner will also receive $500 from the SPE Composites Division to offset travel costs to the ANTEC conferences.
To be considered for this award, candidates must submit a 250-word abstract on their research and complete the Mettler Toledo SPE Award Form. The abstracts and Form must be E-mailed before March to the Awards Chair.
