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 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 Awards and Honors Council 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: 31 March
  • ASNT ISC will notify all applicants of their status by 29 April.

For any questions regarding the award process or timeline, please contact ASNT’s Program Specialist at
