NACS seeks to promote and grow the science of catalysis and its related sciences. The Richard J. Kokes Travel Award, which covers a portion of lodging and registrations fees, encourages North American college students to attend the biennial NACS meeting to be held June 4-9 in Denver.

As one of roughly 100 recipients of the award, Krishnamurthy will learn about technological challenges, breakthrough discoveries, and state-of-the-art academic and industrial research within the field of catalysis.
