Research Awards for Undergraduate Students 2021
The Condensed Matter Physics Division-GEFES of RSEF provides up to 8 awards amounting to 750 € (including taxes) for research works on Condensed Matter performed by undergraduate students under the supervision of GEFES members. The work by the students should start in July 2021. A report and a summary in Spanish for the general public of the work done should be submitted by the end of the year.
- Undergraduate students who have completed more than 70% of their degree credits after the May-June exams of this academic course, as well as students that have graduated this academic course (2020-2021).
- Students must choose a tutor among researchers who are members of GEFES.
- The performed work should be different from any previous work by the student (for example, work done for any particular subject of their undergraduate studies), but it can be a continuation of previous work.
- These awards are not compatible with simultaneous ones of similar characteristics.
- Tutors must hold a PhD, be members of GEFES and have a contract with a Research Institution or University in Spain.
- Each GEFES researcher can support the application of one student and only if they did not supervise a student on the previous call.
The deadline for applications is 21 June 2021. The candidates should send their application to firstname.lastname@example.org providing:
- Name and surname(s) of the candidate.
- Name, surname(s) and affiliation of the supervisor.
- Title of the research topic of their choice.
- Marks average supported by a copy of their academic certificate (expediente académico). The document should include information about ALL the subjects and credits passed up to the application date. The file must be named SURNAMES-NAME.pdf.
The tutor should be in copy of the email.
The evaluation committee will be composed by members of the GEFES board.
