ANNOUNCING The Ludo Frevel Crystallographic Scholarship FUNDRAISER
Help ICDD ensure that we will have future generations of crystallographers! The Ludo Frevel Crystallographic
Scholarship is an award to support the education and research programs of promising graduate students in
crystallography-related fields. Since 1991, the ICDD has awarded 148 scholarships to aspiring crystallographers.
As part of our arrangement with the original scholarship founders, the Frevel family, ICDD places 100% of all
donations into the scholarship endowment, and the scholarship endowment is 100% directed toward paying
scholarships. As the number of qualified applicants from around the world has doubled in recent years, we would hope to increase the endowment to provide a corresponding increase in the number of awardees.
To support this worthy cause, as well as celebrate the International Year of Crystallography, ICDD has initiated its
first crystallography scholarship fund drive in 22 years. 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. Today's crystallographers, and scholarship recipients, are working on new energy sources,
advanced electronics, catalysts, cultural heritage, new medicines, environmental remediation and studying the
fundamental use of nanomaterials as molecular machines.
