ASNT… Creating a Safer World! ™

Student Travel Grant

The Student Travel Grant Reimbursement serves to provide an incentive to full time students to attend the ASNT Spring Research Symposium by providing reimbursement for qualified travel expenses.


Full time students, undergraduate or graduate, enrolled at a four year university or college in the U.S are eligible


Students applying for the Student Travel Grant Reimbursement should submit the following:

  • Short essay of the student’s career plans, the role they expect NDT/NDE to play in their plans, and the benefits they anticipate from attendance at the Research Symposium.
  • One (1) letter of recommendation from a faculty member which includes verification of the student’s full-time status.
  • A cover page with University address and phone number, as well as the email address of the faculty member that wrote the letter of recommendation.

The Financial Awards Committee selects up to twenty (20) recipients and up to two (2) alternates each year. Selection will be based in part on the number of applications received. Students presenting at the Research Symposium will be given priority during the selection process. Student activities involved in NDE research will be weighted heavier.

Award Timeline

  • Nomination deadline: 15 December 2020.
  • The Financial Awards Committee will review all applications and send the selected recipients and alternates to ASNT ISC by 15 January 2021.
  • ASNT ISC will notify applicants of their status by 21 January 2021.
