ICDD Press Release

Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship Awards

August 10, 2009

Application Deadline: 31 October 2009

To encourage promising graduate students to pursue crystallography‑oriented research, the International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD) has established the Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship Fund. Multiple recipients are selected on a competitive basis, each receiving an award of $2,500.   Applications must be received by the ICDD by 31 October 2009.

Qualifications for the applicant:  The applicant should be enrolled in a graduate degree program during the 2010 calendar year with major interest in crystallography, e.g. crystal structure analysis, crystal morphology, modulated structures, correlation of atomic structure with physical properties, systematic classification of crystal structures, phase identification and materials characterization. There are no restrictions on country, race, age or sex. The term of the scholarship is one year.  In order to broaden the geographic distribution of the scholarships, the committee will give special consideration to applicants in regions underrepresented in the past.  These include Europe, Asia, South America and Africa.  We encourage applicants from these regions to apply.

Scholarship awards are made possible by donations from both private and industrial sectors.  Donations can be directed to the Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship at the address below.
