Award:

RMF announces an award, namely Raj Mittra Grant in India (RMGI), for Ph.D. students, studying in India, in the honor of Prof. Raj Mittra. For the first year, the award will include travel grant, conference registration, and hotel accommodation for one participant of the IEEE Indian Conference on Antennas and Propagation (InCAP)-2018, Hyderabad. As the award will be given at the conference venue, the awardee is required to provisionally make his/her own arrangements to attend the conference. The future awards may include other activities, consistent with the objectives of RMF in promoting education and research in electromagnetics in India.

Eligibility for RMGI:

Ph.D. candidates, studying in India in the field of electromagnetics, may apply for this award. The successful candidate will be selected based on the biodata, research publication, Ph.D. research plan, and the paper accepted at IEEE InCAP. Importance will be given to the works dealing with the fundamental physics and/or mathematics of engineering electromagnetics. Application criteria are as follows:

1. Completion of at least two years in the Ph.D. program on the day of the last date of application.

2. The doctoral degree must not have been awarded on the day of the last date of application.

3. Acceptance of at least one paper in IEEE InCAP 2018 with the candidate as the first author.

Application Procedure for RMGI:
