Which awards are available for participants?
Students can apply for Division travel awards, which will be evaluated by SIP jurors in spring and recipients will usually be notified by May 1. Deadlines for submission are indicated on the meeting website and is normally around April 1. All applicants for Division awards who are submitting an oral presentation will also be considered for the Mauro Martignoni Award.
Students can also compete for either Best Student Oral or for Best Poster Presentation at the annual meetings. This opportunity is open to all student presenters, including recipients of Division travel awards.
Scientists (including students and post-docs) from less developed countries are eligible to apply for the Chris J. Lomer Memorial Award. The deadline for this award is April 1.
As of 2017, post-docs may apply for the Early-career award, if they fulfil the criteria. Applications will be excepted beginning November 15. The deadline for this award will be January 20.
Please note: if you apply this year, and do not get the early career award, you will be able to apply again next year if you still qualify.
All applicants for awards also need to submit their abstract(s) separately to the meeting organization.
