Student Travel Grants

The Glass Manufacturing Industry Council (GMIC) announces student travel grants for the 83rd Conference on Glass Problems (GPC).

Student Travel Grants help support student travel to the 83rd GPC.  GMIC will award student travel grants in the amount of $500.00 to offset student travel expenses.  All students can attend the 83rd GPC without travel grant support.  All students are eligible to receive complimentary registration to the 83rd GPC, Short Course and the GMIC Symposium and reduced-price lodging.

Student travel grants are made possible in part by a generous grant from Air Products, a world leader in industrial gas supply and technology.
