The SVC Foundation is dedicated to developing future leaders in vacuum coating technology so they have decided to support the education and scientific activities of both students and those working in this field.

That is why they are offering three scholarship-related opportunities: College Scholarships, Industry Scholarships, and Student Travel Sponsorship.

Full Description

If you are interested in the college scholarships you would be glad to know that three or more scholarship awards will be made annually, generally in amounts up to $5,000.

The Scholarship Committee may change the number of awardees, the amount of the awards and types of awards based on factors such as available funds as well as the number and quality of applications.

Scholarship money can be used for the payment of tuition, books, and fees, or for the travel to appropriate conferences.

You are welcome to apply for multiple scholarships when eligible and even to reapply for a scholarship more than once.

Who's eligible?

The SVC scholarship fund has the aim to financially support and further the education of an individual who is entering or is currently enrolled in a course of study related to vacuum coating technology at an accredited educational institution.

The good thing for past scholarship winners is that they are welcomed to re-apply, provided that they still meet the required criteria.

Also, interested applicants should have in mind that the preference will be given to practitioners, undergraduate and graduate students whose major is engineering, physics, materials science and other fields related to vacuum coating.

Students must be enrolled full-time during the semesters of the award.

How to Apply

If you meet the criteria and you are interested in applying, here is how you should do it.

You are supposed to download the corresponding application form and fill out all the details. Then, you need to submit it by e-mail or mail before the deadline.

The SVC Foundation scholarship selection committee will review all application materials and determine the winner according to:

  • The relevance of the applicant’s field of study to vacuum coating technology
  • The applicant’s academic achievement, including grades, courses selected, interdisciplinary skills and interests
  • The applicant’s personal qualities including motivation, social values, maturity, and goals
  • Financial need
