ECS Biannual Meeting Travel Grants Supported by the ECS Community

In 2022, ECS divisions and sections provided $106,295 in funding to assist students, postdocs, and early career researchers participate in ECS biannual meetings.

We thank the ECS divisions and sections, as well as our generous donors who supported the biannual meeting travel grant program. Congratulations to the recipients of their support.

Battery Division Travel Grants

The ECS Battery Division recognized their top two 242nd ECS Meeting travel grant applicants with K.M. Abraham Travel Awards:

The K.M. Abraham Travel Award is sponsored by a $50,000 endowment from Kuzhikalail M. Abraham, principal at E-Kem Sciences. Abraham joined ECS in 1979 and has been a member for over 43 years. The award named in his honor recognizes promising students in the science and engineering areas of electrochemical energy storage and conversion.
