Paul Phelps Continuing Education Grant

The Paul Phelps Continuing Education Grant, funded by the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society, is awarded to support participation in the ICOPS 2023 Mini-course on "Industrial Application of Plasmas" and to further encourage membership in NPSS. Each grant will be in the form of a waiver for (early) mini-course registration fees.

Eligibility is limited to outstanding members of NPSS who are either student members or unemployed members needing assistance in changing career direction.

Applicants will be judged on exceptional promise as a student in any of the fields of NPSS, or exceptional work in those fields by currently unemployed NPSS members with an expectation that attendance to the Mini-Course will result in an improved possibility of obtaining a job in an NPSS field.
