HFES Announces Travel and Presenter Awards for Students


The Council of Technical Groups will again offer opportunities for students to apply for funding to assist them in attending the 2020 Annual Meeting. Applications for these awards are due May 20, 2020.

The 64th Annual Meeting of HFES convenes October 5 - 9, 202 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago Hotel.   We invite eligible students to apply for one of these awards!

The Council of Technical Groups Travel Award for First Year Graduate Students provides $599 for graduate students who are in the first year of their academic program (entered the program no earlier than Fall of 2019). Students must be members of HFES at the time of application. Applicants who submit completed applications will be selected randomly. The application form is located at the following page:  Application for Travel Award for First Year Graduate Students.

The Council of Technical Groups Student Presenter Award provides $599 to students who are authors of accepted papers or posters for the HFES Annual Meeting. The student must be listed as the presenting author of the associated work at the time of submission. Students must also be members of HFES at the time of application. Nominations for this award must be submitted by a faculty member in the student's program. Note that the nominator does not have to be an advisor or coauthor of the work. Travel awards will be assessed based on need and, in the case of multiple qualified applicants, randomly. Full details and the application form can be found at the following page:  Student Presenter Award Application.

Students may only be awarded one of these two awards and are ineligible if they have been awarded in the past.   Awardees will receive a check in the amounts stated above at the Annual Meeting.
