Ritchey Travel Award
The Ritchey Travel Award is suspended for 2021. We look forward to granting the award again for the 63rd ENC in 2022 when we will gather for a face-to-face conference.
The ENC Ritchey Travel Award is established to honor William M. Ritchey, who was Professor Emeritus of Chemistry and Macromolecular Science at Case Western Reserve University. William Ritchey founded the ENC in 1960. The award was established with contributions from Professor Ritchey’s former students. The areas of the Award are to reflect Prof. Ritchey’s broad interests in the development and application of NMR to chemical and material sciences.
