The grant, which has been given to ICALEO for three years, will be used to support the Student Paper Award at the conference. In 2008, 11 graduate students attended the conference at no cost. The grant program has been established to encourage student innovation and participation in the world’s largest conference of laser and electro-optic technology. For more information or to submit an application, visit: www.icaleo.org.
