ICTAM 2012 Fellowships

The USNC/TAM organized a fellowship program to provide funds for travel assistance to the
 23rd International Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM), held August  19-24, 2012 in Beijing, China.  Awards were made to 19 U.S. citizens and permanent residents who presented a paper at the Congress.

In addition to the fellowship awards, the committee also sponsored a breakfast at the congress for all award recipients where they learned more about the activities of the USNC and IUTAM. In addition, younger recipients were matched with USNC members in attendance at the congress for a mentoring experience.

The National Science Foundation and the U.S. National Committee provided support for the 2012 fellowships.
