The objective of the Richard J.
Kokes Travel Award program of NACS is to encourage the
participation of students in biennial North American Catalysis
Society (NACS) Meetings. The Kokes Award covers a significant
portion of the transportation, lodging, and conference
registration costs. Eligible students need to be enrolled at a
North American university and need to present a paper at the
meeting. The Kokes awardees will be required to contribute some
time to the running of the conference (e.g., speaker support)
and to be present at the meeting during the entire time. We
note that the awards have traditionally been awarded only to
graduate students. This year, for the first time, undergraduate
students who can meet the requirements are also eligible.
