The American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA) is pleased to announce that three students have been awarded the ADC Fellowship Awards for 2015.
In 2011, the Affordable Desalination Collaboration (ADC) established a fund to provide financial support to students involved in membrane research and directed the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA) to distribute those monies in the form of Fellowships.
AMTA received a number of highly qualified submittals in June 2015 and after committee review the following graduate students were chosen to receive part of the $10,000 allocated for this annual award:
- Samantha Jeffery, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL
- Sarah Dischinger, University of Colorado at Boulder, CO
- Paula Monaco, Texas Tech University at Lubbock, TX
Each of the recipients will attend the 2016 Membrane Technology Conference and Exposition (MTC) to be held in San Antonio, Texas on February 1-4 and personally present their work as a paper or poster presentation. The award monies are intended to support their research and to provide financial assistance for travel expenses related to the MTC attendance.
