Dominick J. Demichele Scholarship Award
Dick DeMichele worked very hard to make the International Modal Analysis Conference (IMAC) accessible to everyone. He understood the importance of the discussion and sharing of new ideas in a conference setting. He felt it was especially important to get students in the experimental mechanics field involved in IMAC.
The Award Consists of:
(1) Reimbursement of all (student-rate) IMAC conference fees paid by the recipient(s).
Criteria for Selection:
The recipient shall be a student in good standing at a recognized college or university.
Nominations for the Award:

2014 Dominick J. DeMichele Scholarship Award:
I am a 24 years old Dutch Master student from the Mechanical Engineering Department of the Delft University of Technology at which I hope to graduate December 2013 with a specialisation in Engineering Dynamics. As part of my Master I did two internships: The first was at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan about bio-mechanics. The aim was to develop a system which could capture the full human gait with a only limited number of sensors. My second internship was at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden about Dynamic Substructuring. The goal here was to couple components of a small wind turbine. Albeit not sure at this point, after my graduation I am planning to find a challenging job in industry in the field of Engineering Dynamics.
