Thomas Metcalf Travel Awards

The Hinode-12 meeting has been selected to receive funds by the Thomas Metcalf Travel Award Committee (MTAC). Therefore we invite here for applications from suitable participants. The funds will be used to support participation by newer members of the solar physics community. The Hinode-12 SOC will select two Metcalf lecturers (granting up to $2000 per awardee) based on their potential for future contributions to the field of Solar Physics. Recipients will be expected to present results relevant to their thesis or current work.

Potential applicants must:

  • Have been awarded their PhD within 4 years of the meeting date or be a student within one year of completing their degree.
  • Be a regular, affiliate, or student member of the SPD.
  • Not have received a Metcalf Travel Award in the past.
  • Submit a CV, one page describing their research with motivation on why would they like to present their work in this particular meeting, and a recommendation letter from their mentor to Please mention "Thomas Metcalf Travel Award application" as the subject of your email.
  • Submit an abstract through the Abstract Submission link.

The recipients of the travel awards will have, once the meeting is finished, to submit a one-page report to the MTAC Chair suitable for public distribution describing their contribution to the meeting. A short bio and a picture of the recipients will be featured in these pages once the selection is made. 

All participants, including the Metcalf lecturers, will have to pay the registration fee regardless of status (student, senior, etc). 

The deadline to apply to the Thomas Metcalf Travel Awards is May 4 2018.
