After a very successful 2016 TRAVEL GRANT PROGRAM, OAI is proud to offer again, for 2017, support to students & professors who used or are using OAI’s UV Exposure Systems in their research and are presenting their research at a technical conference. In 2017, OAI travel grants went to students presenting their work in MEMS, Nanotechnology, and Microfluidics.

Travel grants are available to the applicant who meets the following criteria:

  1. Applicant is presenting a research paper or poster
  2. Applicant is using or will be using an OAI system
  3. Applicant must acknowledge the use of OAI equipment in their paper and the travel support by OAI
  4. Amount of grant to be $350-$500 US Dollars
  5. Permission given to OAI to post your paper on the OAI company website

Please contact OAI for further information. It is OAI’s goal to continue supporting research & contributing to the technologies of the future.

Travel Grant Program

For over three decades, OAI has earned a reputation as a top-tier provider of precision lithography equipment in MEMS, Microfluidics, Nanotechnology and Semiconductor markets. The company has been a committed supporter of R&D in these areas of study at universities worldwide.Working in collaboration with numerous professors and students, OAI has developed equipment to meet their special requirements. Now, OAI is taking research support one step further. We are offering a limited number of Travel Grants to students presenting research that was conducted using OAI equipment in the university lab. We review applications and present travel grants on a quarterly basis.

To apply, please read the criteria below and submit your application to: Charles Turk –

OAI Travel Grant Criteria*:
