degree or from established scholars. Awards are not limited to U.S.
citizens. Graduate students must have completed one year of study prior
to receiving a grant-in-aid. For the Biot award, preference will be given

aeronautics, applied mechanics and geophysics. No applicant may receive
more than two awards, and awards will not be given to the same applicant
