Student Travel Grants

The TMS technical divisions offer a limited number of travel grants—up to $500 each—to Material Advantage student members interested in attending the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition or the Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) conference. These travel grants help students to offset the costs of transportation and hotel accommodations, but students receiving travel grants are responsible for making their own meeting registration and travel arrangements.

For the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition, assistance is provided by all five TMS technical divisions: 

  • Extraction & Processing Division (EPD)
  • Functional Materials Division (FMD)
  • Light Metals Division (LMD)
  • Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division (MPMD)
  • Structural Materials Division (SMD)

For MS&T, travel assistance is only available from the following divisions:

  • Functional Materials Division (FMD)
  • Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division (MPMD) 
  • Structural Materials Division (SMD)

    Please note: Travel grants are only available to members of the Material Advantage program.
