The Bioceramics Young Scholar Award recognizes excellence in research among current degree-seeking graduate students and postdoctoral research associates.

A letter from a faculty advisor or postdoctoral advisor verifying compliance to this rule must accompany the application.

All applicants are required to submit two abstracts:

  1. Submit one short abstract to a bioceramics-focused symposium via the MS&T abstract submission site. The short abstract will be used for organizing the technical program of the MS&T meeting.
  1. Submit a second, extended abstract (2,000 words maximum plus figures and tables) to the bioceramics division chair for evaluation by the division’s awards committee. The extended abstract should contain a summary of the nominee’s work (approximately 2,000 words plus figures) relevant to the interests of the division.

The nomination profile should also include:

  • Nominee’s latest CV
  • Two supporting letters

The award will be presented at the ACerS Annual Meeting/MS&T. All Young Scholar Award applicants are expected to submit an abstract for either a poster or an oral presentation in a bioceramics-focused symposium at the meeting.

The award winner will present an invited oral presentation at a bioceramics-focused symposium at the MS&T conference. The awardee shall receive a certificate, glass piece, and complimentary registration.

The deadline for nominations is January 31 in the year preceding the MS&T conference.
