2022 Elmer Carvey Scholarship

The Southern California Chapter of the AVS Science and Technology Society (SCCAVS) currently administers a scholarship program for undergraduate students planning a career in the physical sciences. It is the 2022 Elmer Carvey Memorial Scholarship -- established in honor of Elmer Carvey, an active member of the SCCAVS from 1964 until 1982.

This Scholarship is valid for undergraduate studies at any public four-year college in California, i.e. California State University or University of California. The stipend is $1,500 and may be used for tuition. Two awards may be given in 2022. Applications are accepted from students in physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering. Applicants should be planning research in areas of interest to the SCCAVS, including surface and thin film science, nanotechnology, the understanding of materials properties, and the development of new materials and devices. (Biological sciences are generally not covered by this Scholarship unless the student's study area is interdisciplinary and involves areas of interest listed above.)

The application materials should be sent to one of the mailing addresses below (letters of recommendation must be sent direct from the recommender). They must be received by July 1, 2022, for the 2022-2023 academic year. Scholarship recipients will be notified by September 1, 2022.
