The scholarships are open to any student currently enrolled or entering an accredited academic program related to the vacuum-coating technology field; including chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, electrical engineering, physics and related subjects. Preference is given to students who are expressly interested in vacuum-coating technology and currently engaged in studies and research relating to vacuum coatings.
If you are in academia and your research makes use of vacuum-coating processes, pass this information on to exceptional students working with you or a colleague. SVC members whose children or relatives are pursuing studies related to vacuum science are also encouraged to apply. Even students that have received past awards may seek an additional scholarship.
This new scholarship for 2018 is offered to anyone already working in the field of vacuum-coating technology. It is intended to help further the education of technical staff by providing for books, travel and tuition for educational classes in the field. Forward this information to your colleagues that could benefit from additional education in their field.
Deadline for applications is Dec. 1. Materials must arrive at SVC Foundation by Dec. 8. Applications and additional information are available online at www.svcfoundation.org
