Student grant program

Thanks to the sponsorship of  the American Physical Society-Division of Physics of Beams (APS-DPB), a certain number of grants will be offered to students in the field of Accelerator Science and Technology to attend NAPAC2019.

The grants include a waiver of registration fees and shared lodging at the Radisson Hotel Lansing and a per diem allowance or dining vouchers. Students pursuing doctoral, master's, or bachelor’s degrees may apply.

Non-U.S. students must apply for a business visa.

Financial support will be available to a selected number of students registered for a PhD or degree in accelerator physics or engineering, to offset the cost of the conference registration fee and shared accommodation at the Radisson Hotel Lansing.
