Young Engineers Travel Grant from SAMPE UK

05 September 2008

SAMPE UK & Ireland Chapter is offering a limited travel grant to Young Engineers to enable them to add value to an industrial visit or conference.

The grant can be used to pay for travel or accommodation in order that the young engineer can extend a stay to enhance knowledge and experience and so continue career development.

Chairman, Prof. Andrew Long, explained the rationale. “Over the years we have developed a variety of schemes to encourage and develop young engineers, such as our highly successful annual Student Seminar competition. We hope that this new scheme will help our young members to enhance their skills and experience – and perhaps this will encourage even more young engineers to join SAMPE!” Application forms are available on the SAMPE UK & Ireland website:

SAMPE is the acronym for the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering. The society, formed originally in the US, is now globally recognised as the leading professional body for engineers and technologists associated with advanced materials and processes. SAMPE is active in Europe through SAMPE Europe and in the UK and Ireland via the SAMPE UK & Ireland Chapter.
