Kokes Awards

The Kokes Awards are spon­sored by the North Amer­i­can Catal­y­sis Soci­ety and admin­is­tered by the North Amer­i­can Meet­ings (NAM) orga­ni­za­tion. The objec­tive of the Richard J. Kokes Travel Award pro­gram is to encour­age the par­tic­i­pa­tion of stu­dents in the bien­nial North Amer­i­can Meet­ings. The Kokes Award cov­ers a por­tion of the lodg­ing and con­fer­ence reg­is­tra­tion costs. Stu­dents who want to apply for a Kokes Award should con­tact the NAM organization.

Eli­gi­ble stu­dents need to be enrolled at a North Amer­i­can uni­ver­sity and need to present a paper at the meet­ing. The Kokes awardees will be required to con­tribute some time to the run­ning of the con­fer­ence (e.g., speaker sup­port) and to be present at the meet­ing dur­ing the entire time. Tra­di­tion­ally, these awards have been pre­sented only to grad­u­ate stu­dents, but at the 22nd NAM, for the first time, under­grad­u­ate stu­dents who met eli­gi­bil­ity require­ments were also considered.
