The Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship

  Honoring Ludo Frevel
About Ludo Frevel

A gentleman and scientistLudo joined The Dow Chemical Company Spectroscopy Laboratory in 1936 and until retirement, was one of Dow’s top scientists. In fact, he was the first Dow scientist to have the title ‘Research Specialist’. He held 60 patents and co-authored 446 technical papers, publishing his most recent paper at age 95. Ludo was co-author with Hanawalt and Rinn on the famous 1938 paper, “Chemical Analysis by X-ray Diffraction”, was a world expert in catalysis, and was known for several innovations in the field of powder diffraction. He also wrote some of the first computer automated material identification software utilizing X-ray powder diffraction data.  Ludo served as ICDD Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1990-1992.

Ludo Frevel Scholarship

The science of crystallography has played a key role in the development of X-ray diffraction, electron diffraction and neutron diffraction for the elucidation of the atomic structure of matter.

Crystallography is an interdisciplinary branch of science taught in departments of physics, chemistry, geology, molecular biology, metallurgy, and material science. To encourage promising graduate students to pursue crystallographically oriented research, the International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD) has established a Crystallography Scholarship Fund, known as the Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship Fund. While the Ewald Prize is awarded every three years to an internationally recognized crystallographer, little effort has been made by science departments to cultivate aspiring crystallographers. Convinced of the beneficial, scientific impact of the proposed scholarships for crystallographically oriented research, the ICDD has solicited funds from private and industrial sectors to support this program.

The ICDD has awarded 201 scholarships since 1991. The 2018 Scholarship Awards were in the amount of $2,500 each (See Recipients). Since the scholarship’s inception in 1991, $479,750 has been awarded to aspiring crystallographers. Applications for the year 2018 awards must be received by ICDD no later than 17 October 2018.

A few words regarding the Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship from the chairperson of the Scholarship committee:
the ludo frevel crystallography Scholarship is:
  • an award to support the education and research program of promising graduate students in crystallography-related fields.
the ludo frevel crystallography Scholarship is NOT:
  • a payment for work or service performed for the ICDD
  • a grant given in expectation of performing ICDD-reviewed research
  • a grant-in-aid

The applicant should be a graduate student enrolled in a graduate degree program  during the 2019 calendar year, with major interest in the following:

  • crystallography e.g. crystal structure analysis
  • crystal morphology
  • modulated structures
  • correlation of atomic structure with physical properties
  • systematic classification of crystal structures
  • phase identification
  • materials characterization

Students with a graduation date prior to 1 July 2019 are NOT eligible for the 2019 scholarship award.

The term of the scholarship is one year. The recipient may make application for one renewal at the end of the first year. Because a limited number of scholarships are awarded, renewal applications will be considered on a competitive basis in conjunction with all applications that have been submitted up to the closing date.

The application deadline has passed. Check back to see the scholarship winners announced in January 2019!

All applications are to be submitted via the ICDD website. Please follow the instructions below. The preferred method of application is via the web; however, if you require an alternate method, please contact Stephanie Jennings – E-mail: sjennings@icdd.com or Tel: 610-325-9814.

The online application will request you to upload the following information in the form of two separate PDF documents. The online application will also request you to provide the contact information for your primary research advisor. An e-mail will be sent to this advisor seeking a letter of recommendation on your behalf. Please note the recommendation letter is due on or before the deadline of 17 October 2018.

Please prepare the following in advance of applying online.

  1. Font Size: 12 point; Margin: no smaller than 3/4 inch.
  2. A description of the candidate’s proposed research (limit 2 pages) including:
    • Purpose and rationale for the research
    • Proposed methodology to be used in the study
    • References and/or descriptions of the scientific background for the proposed research
  3. A curriculum vitae including:
    • Educational preparation (institutions, dates, degrees obtained and in progress, and particularly pertinent coursework)
    • Awards, honors received
    • Any research publications and/or presentations given
    • Any work experience (dates, employers, positions)
    • Professional activities, memberships
applications are now over

The amount of available funding limits the number of scholarships that can be granted in any given year. A committee consisting of the ICDD Scholarship Committee Chairman, the ICDD Chairman, the Chairman of the ICDD Education Subcommittee, the ICDD Corporate Secretary and individuals without conflict of interest administer the awarding of the scholarships. One or more accredited professors (with no conflicts of interest) may be invited to assist in the selection of successful candidates. The selection committee will evaluate the applications received to determine which are most deserving of a scholarship. These evaluations consider both the proposal (impact, innovativeness, originality, efficacy of approach, and relationship to crystallography) and the student (recommendation letter, educational track record, prior work and/or research, honors, awards, and professional activities) in determining which applicants will receive the award.

There is a limitation of one award per educational institution. In the event that two or more candidates from one institution are considered to be among the top applicants, only one will be given an award.

Students with a graduation date prior to 1 July 2019 are NOT eligible for the 2019 scholarship award.

A portion of the award may be applied to registration fees and travel costs to attend accredited scientific meetings related to crystallography, where the recipient is presenting results of work performed as part of his or her graduate studies.

There is a limitation of one award per educational institution. In the event that two or more candidates from one institution are considered to be among the top applicants, only one will be given an award.
