Turbo Expo Early Career Engineer Travel Award (TEECE)

Information and Eligibility

The Turbo Expo Early Career Engineer Travel Award is intended for early career engineers working in industry, in government or in academia to obtain travel funding to attend ASME Turbo Expo to present a paper which they have authored or co-authored.

  • One Complimentary ASME Turbo Expo Technical Conference Registration
  • Complimentary hotel accommodations (Sunday to Friday)
  • Up to $1,000 toward approved travel expenses

The nominee must have obtained an academic degree (Bachelor, Master, PhD, or equivalent degrees) in an engineering discipline related to turbomachinery within five years from the year of the Turbo Expo that the applicant wishes to attend. The paper or poster being presented can be research results from work completed either while pursuing an academic degree, or after leaving school and entering the job field. Post-doctoral researchers in academic institutions are eligible so long as they have been in post no longer than five years full time equivalent.
