Apprentice Science Reporter Program

The Apprentice Science Reporter Program is a joint program between the Materials Research Society (MRS) and the ICMR. This program funds graduate students/post-docs in materials-related areas at US universities to accompany MRS staff to conferences outside the US and compile daily technical reports for inclusion in the MRS Meeting Scene e-newsletters.

For more information please visit the MRS web site or contact Tim Palucka, Science News Editor (Palucka@mrs.org)
