The ASNT Fellowship Award is a cash award, currently up to $20,000 per award, granted to an ABET-accredited educational institution to fund specific research in NDT at the postgraduate level (MS or Ph.D). The application should be in the form of a proposal for a graduate level research project from the university outlining what the program or graduate study activity will consist of and how long they will manage the fellowship. ASNT membership is not required for eligibility.
The Financial Awards Committee selects up to five $20,000 awards each year, pending merit and number of submissions. The committee will critically review all proposals using the following guidelines and the contents and quality of the submitted proposals: How novel is the research; Value of potential contribution; Soundness of technical approach; Scope of the proposed research effort; Potential for successful completion; Adequacy of the proposal team; and Adequacy of the facilities.
