Charles Coates Conference Travel Award
The award reimburses up to $1200 of eligible travel expenses. Students may receive this award once during their Ph.D. studies. The travel must be to a national or international conference at which applicants are presenting the results of their doctoral research in the form of an oral presentation or poster. Applicants must be both first author and presenter of the research and have the recommendation of their major professor. Applicants must be Ph.D. students in the Chemistry Department.
There are two annual deadlines for these awards:
Two awards will be made for each deadline (unless additional funds are available).
Charles E. Coates’ legacy of dedication to graduate study has been preserved over the years by the commitment, achievement, and high caliber of each class of graduate students. Their achievements could not be realized without the assistance of the Charles E. Coates Memorial Fund, established in 1964 in memory of one of LSU’s early professors of chemistry. The Coates Fund assists full-time chemical engineering, chemistry, and physics doctoral students in their research endeavors through four awards: outstanding dissertation, conference travel, research travel, and scholar research.
