The organizing committee for the Society of Plastics Engineers' (SPE) Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE) reports that it will again bestow two $2,000 USD scholarships for graduate-level research in polymer composites that has impact on ground transportation. Students interested in applying will find a Scholarship Application form available for downloading at www.speautomotive.com/comp.htm; applications should be submitted electronically to accepapers@speautomotive.com by July 1, 2011 for awards to be announced in August.

The scholarships are funded by proceeds from previous SPE ACCE conferences and donations made by the SPE Composites and Automotive Divisions.
