The deadline for this opportunity has passed. When the next call for nominations is released, this page will reflect the relevant updates. For planning purposes, EVPR office instructions to the campus from the last solicitation appear below:
Georgia Tech has an opportunity to nominate graduate students to attend the 2013 Nobel Laureate meeting in Lindau, Germany. This year DOE, NIH, NSF, ORAU, and Mars, Inc. will nominate up to 85 graduate students to attend the meeting to be held on June 30 - July 5, 2013. This program is operated by DOE’s Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, which is managed by ORAU.
ORAU will sponsor approximately 10 to 15 students to participate in the meeting along with the student delegation sponsored by DOE, NIH, NSF, and Mars, Inc. As an ORAU Sponsoring Institution, we are invited to make two additional nominations directly to ORAU for this program. Additional information and the nomination form may be found at www.orau.org/lindau.
Since 1951, Nobel Prize winners and students have met annually in Lindau. Each year an international group of students attend the week-long meeting. The Laureates will lecture on topics of their choice in the mornings and participate in less formal discussions with students in the afternoons and evenings. Information on the most recent meeting is available on the web at www.orau.org/lindau/past-mtgs/default.htm.
Please note that the eligibility criteria for the ORAU program is slightly different than for the DOE, NIH, and NSF sponsored program; ORAU will accept nominations for students participating in research programs supported by public and/or private funding sources. To be eligible, students must have completed by June 2013 at least two academic years of study toward doctoral degree in chemistry, or in a related discipline, but not planning a dissertation/thesis defense before December 31, 2013; be a U.S. citizen; and be currently enrolled at a university as a full-time graduate student. They must be actively participating in research in the field of chemistry or a related field. ORAU is interested in receiving nominations from a diverse group of students, including those underrepresented in chemistry (for example, women, minorities, or disabled students).
