The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) report that for the second year in a row a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant will be provided to select students from US colleges and universities to attend its POWDERMET2018 and AMPM2018 conferences taking place in San Antonio, Texas, USA, from 17–20 June 2018. NSF Grant Awards will cover the full registration fee and hotel accommodation in double occupancy.

POWDERMET2018: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials and AMPM2018: Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy are co-located conferences that cover the latest research and developments in powder metallurgy (PM), particulate materials, and metal additive manufacturing (AM). They allow college students to network with industry leaders, present their own research, and learn from those already working in the industry.

Applicants are required to be from US institutions, attend the entire conference, and participate at the conference as an author on a poster on engineering activities at their institution, and provide a 10-minute synopsis of the poster during a scheduled poster session. Recipients are responsible for the cost of their own transportation and meals outside of the included conference events.
