Matthew Oleksiak, a graduate student in the department of chemical and biomolecular engineering, was awarded the 2013 Richard J. Kokes Travel Award from the North American Catalysis Society (NACS) to attend the upcoming NACS conference in Louisville, Ky. from June 2-7.

The Kokes Travel Award program of NACS aims to encourage undergraduate and graduate students to attend and participate in the biennial NACS conference. This award will allow Oleksiak to travel to the conference free of charge and will cover the costs of his student conference registration fee and hotel accommodations, as well as providing a travel allowance.

The Kokes Travel Award is as prestigious as it is competitive -- approximately 100 awards were granted to the over 200 applicants.
