Dear All,
The National Science Foundation is offering 40 Grants/Scholarship (no cost except air) for students in the US, from any Engineering/Science discipline to attend the Annual PM (Powder Metallurgy) Conference in Las Vegas, to get them exposed to the field of Powder Metallurgy – a super niche technology.

Please review the Grant Request below and also my communication with Jim Adams the Executive Director of MPIF/APMI. Time is short.
It would be great opportunity for our community youngsters to participate, learn, and network.
