The IPMHVC Executive Committee will present two student awards during the 2024 IPMHVC event. Ideally, we expect the recipient to be present at the conference to be recognized and receive the award. Students applying for an award must be an author or co-author of an abstract submitted to the conference. To be considered for the graduate level awards, nominees must be current graduate students or recent graduate degree recipients (within 18 months prior to the conference date) and should be members of IEEE at the time of the award presentation. Award recipients will receive a plaque stating the award, a monetary award ranging from $500 to $1000, and recognition at the conference banquet.
Award nomination packages are due March 8, 2024. Please send complete nomination packages via email to the Student Awards Chair:
High Voltage Association Student Excellence Award
The High Voltage Association Student Excellence Award was established in 2008 to recognize the contributions made by a graduate student in the area of high voltage systems, components, research, and technology. Nominations for this award should emphasize the high voltage technology and design aspects that have been incorporated into a project in the extended version of the submitted abstract. The High Voltage Association, formed by several companies who have products and research in high voltage systems and components, financially sponsors the award.
Tom R. Burkes Student Awards
In 2002, the IEEE International Power Modulator Conference created two Student Awards in honor of Dr. Tom R. Burkes, Professor, Texas Tech University (1937-1998). The awards are:
The 2024 IPMHVC will award a limited number of Student Travel Grants to promising students to help defray the costs of attending the conference. These awards, ranging from $500 to $1000, are reserved for full-time graduate or undergraduate university students in the fields of engineering, science, or technology. The criteria for selection will be based on the student’s accomplishments and future plans, level of participation in the conference, and individual need relative to the expected travel costs. The student applicant should be an author on at least one paper to be presented at the conference.
