Award Administrator(s): 

The Harry West Student Poster Award consists of a certificate and a monetary award to the presenter. Number and amount will be at the discretion of the F&PD judging team. Plaques will also be presented to the department of the award winner.


Relevant posters in fuels, petrochemicals, and safety will be identified by submitting an abstract to the Student Poster competition of the AIChE Annual meeting. Posters are not restricted to research topics and may include design case studies and reviews. Posters must describe the student’s own original contribution but may be part of a larger project to which the submitter contributed. Judging for the Harry West Award is separate from the AIChE event. Results in the AIChE event will have no bearing in the selection of winners, nor will the Harry West Award impact AIChE winners.
