TIEMS Rohrmann Student Scholarship Fund
TIEMS Rohrmann Student Scholarship Fund was initiated by Bernd Rohrmann, who donated the basic funds for TIEMS to be able to support graduate students to participate in TIEMS annual conferences.
This Fund will financially support two students each year, and students are encouraged to submit their paper proposals and applications for financial support by filling in the application form according to the Rules and Procedures for the Fund. Students need to fill out the Application Form and send as instructed at the end of the form.
