AAAS STUDENT E-POSTER COMPETITION
Student E-Poster site opens on June 12 and closes on October 11.
The competition is open to individuals who are students at the time of submission for work recently performed while enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral degree program (post-doctoral students are not eligible – even if presenting research from graduate school).
There is no longer a first and final round. All submitters MUST present in person at the Annual Meeting in Denver, CO. Undergraduate and graduate students are scored with the same rubric and criteria, but are evaluated separately. Submissions that do not meet these criteria will be disqualified.
Please review the 2024 Student Poster Guidelines for updates, important deadlines and instructions on how to prepare your abstract. The deadline to submit an abstract and the non-refundable $25 application fee is by October 11, 2023, 11:59 PM PT.
GRANTS AND SESSION AIDES
You can apply for grants or session aide to assist with the E-poster costs.
Helen Froelich Holt and Dr. Joshua E. Neimark travel awards are given to graduate E-poster presenters who have passed the first round submission. Restrictions apply.
Session Aides work closely with AAAS and are an integral part of the Annual Meeting. In exchange for volunteering for a minimum of 4 hours. The $75 meeting (registration fee) will be refunded 3 weeks after the meeting provided all assignments are completed (Undergraduates and Graduates are welcome to apply).
The first place winning undergraduate and graduate students in each category will receive a cash award of $500, a one-year AAAS membership that includes a digital subscription to the journal Science, name and poster title printed and published in Science, and a recognition certificate.
The honorable mention place winning undergraduate and graduate students in each category will have their name and poster title printed and published in Science and will receive a recognition certificate.
