Qualifications for the applicant: The applicant should be enrolled in a graduate degree program during the 2012 calendar year with major interest in crystallography, e.g. crystal structure analysis, crystal morphology, modulated structures, correlation of atomic structure with physical properties, systematic classification of crystal structures, phase identification and materials characterization. Students with a graduation date prior to 1 July 2012 are not eligible for the 2012 scholarship award. There are no restrictions on country, race, age or sex. The term of the scholarship is one year.
