ICDD Press Release

Robert L. Snyder Student Travel Awards

February 7, 2012


The International Centre for Diffraction Data is pleased to announce the Robert L. Snyder Student Travel Awards, which honor the life and work of Robert (Bob) L. Snyder. These awards offer limited travel support which allows undergraduate and graduate students to attend the Annual Denver X-ray Conference. Bob devoted a great deal of energy in cultivating future X-ray analysts, and it is with this award that the ICDD strives to continue his mission.

Students granted the award must participate in the technical program of the conference by submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation. Grants in the amount of $500 will be awarded to students living in the USA, and those living outside of the USA will receive $1,000. Applications are reviewed on a competitive basis. To apply for a student travel award, students must submit an application, a copy of the abstract for oral or poster presentation at DXC, and a supporting letter from an advisor. The deadline to apply is 1 May each year.

As an outstanding educator and researcher, Bob was Professor Emeritus of Ceramic Science at Alfred University, Chairman of Material Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University, and co-chair of the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech. He also served as chairman of both the ICDD and the Denver X-ray Conference. Bob was known for his passion for science and life, which was evident in his extensive travel and interactions with scientists from around the world.
