SANTA CLARA, CA NOVEMBER 10, 2016
Park Systems announces the 2017 Park AFM Scholarship Award eligible to undergraduate or postdoctoral students working in nanotechnology research either already using Park AFM or who have research they would like to do with Atomic Force Microscope and need help getting access to the equipment. Park will assist researchers who qualify as Park AFM scholars to gain access to the right microscopy tools for their research and are offering a scholarship for those who qualify. Park Systems is now accepting applications which include abstracts from all students and researchers who present research ideas. If you wish to become a Park AFM Scholar submit the application by Dec. 31, 2016 online at http://www.parkafm.com/scholarship.
Park AFM Scholars will be selected and notified and winners will also receive an opportunity to have their research profiled in Nano-ScientificNano-Scientific, a quarterly print magazine on nanotechnology research distributed worldwide.
As progress for nano-scale research and development advances at an unprecedented rate, universities world-wide offer degree programs in nanotechnology. Park Systems, world-leading manufacturer of Atomic Force Microscopes is offering two monetary scholarships to promote the education of future scientists and engineers in a number of nanoscale research areas that require advanced nano microscopy for analysis and to promote shared research findings and methodologies amongst researchers.
"We are delighted to offer financial incentive to scholars utilizing atomic force microscopy who are pioneering new research methodologies in nano science and technology at leading academic institutions world-wide," stated Keibock Lee, Park Systems President. "Our continued mission is to support the promotion of shared knowledge amongst interdisciplinary teams of scientists and engineers to advance nanoscale discoveries."
Park Systems Atomic Force Microscopes are used at thousands of leading institutions world-wide and are known as the premier microscopy tool for accurate nano particle analysis. Park Systems will offer assistance to researchers who need a facility to perform their research using Park Atomic Force Microscope by matching them with one of thousands of shared nano facilities that include Park AFM systems.
The patented SmartScan™ operating system has revolutionized the transfer of data to a simple point-and-click system, not dependent on user experience. "With new SmartScan™ on Park AFM, researchers can rely on the accuracy of the data and focus on their research," adds Lee.
The two types of scholarships eligible to Park Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) Scholars are a $300 scholarship if AFM research in Nanotechnology is conducted at the university where you are a student. Another scholarship of $500 will be award to a Park AFM Scholar if their Nanotechnology Research is selected for presentation at an Academic Conference.
To apply, fill out the online application by Dec. 31, 2016 online at http://www.parkafm.com/scholarship. Make sure to have your presentation title and abstract ready. Awardees will be announced on parkafm.com and notified individually.
