The 2002 award is for $2500. In order to be considered for the award, students must submit an application that includes a CV, official academic transcripts, a brief essay (less than 250 words) on what enticed the candidate to enter the polymer field, and what are his/her current thoughts about a career in plastics, a succinct description in no more than 500 words of the Senior project, M.S. or Ph.D. project which this Scholarship will help support, and a recommendation and brief summary of capabilities with respect to polymer engineering by the candidate's research advisor. Students must also be a member of SPE.

The Department offers its hearty congratulations to Rajath.
