2016 KSEA Young Investigator Grants (YIGs)

Dear KSEA Members,

Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA) is pleased to announce competition for the 2016 KSEA Young Investigator Grants (YIGs), which intend to recognize those who have demonstrated outstanding early career development in science and/or technology. Two grants will be awarded this year as follows:

Grant: US $10,000 for each awardee with an additional travel support up to $1,000 to attend the award ceremony at UKC2016.

Application Period: From November 15, 2015 to January 1, 2016

Description: The KSEA Young Investigator Grant is the KSEA’s highest recognition given to young professionals who earned a doctoral degree in science or engineering, and have been working in academia, industry, or government for no more than 6 years after the degree. Two YIGs will be awarded this year: one grant selected from the areas of Technical Groups A through F, and the other from Technical Groups G through M. A list of 13 Technical Groups may be found at http://www.ksea.org/home/?q=node/130.

Eligibility: Each applicant should have received a Ph.D. degree within six years of the application (On or after January 1, 2010).

The required materials are a curriculum vita, a research or technology development plan for one year (five pages), and two reference letters. The application package must specify the pertinent Technical Group in which it is to be evaluated.

Evaluation: Evaluation of the applications and selection of the successful applicants will be conducted by the KSEA Honors & Awards Committee (HAC) in collaboration with Technical Group Councilors and their representatives. The recipients will be announced through the KSEA web page and via email by April 30, 2016.

Administration: The grant is awarded through the recipient’s institution in the United States, not directly to the recipient. The recipient must submit a final report, which summarizes the achievements supported through the grantand expenditure details. An additional travel reimbursement up to US $1,000 will be provided to the recipient to attend the award ceremony at UKC2016.
