Annually, through the Doing a World of Good campaign, the AIChE Foundation provides travel grants to dynamic students from around the globe. In 2017, seven students were awarded the International Student Chapter Leadership Development Travel Grant and attended the Annual Student Conference in Minneapolis.
Historically this travel grant has opened the doors of opportunity for professional development, leadership skills, networking and most importantly mentorship from pioneers of the chemical engineering profession. Since the inception of this innovative global program in 2014, the grant has been utilized by 28 students from 21 student chapters in 16 diverse countries.
The 2018 cycle is now open and the deadline to submit an application is July 1, 2018. For more information, click here.
