Student Travel Awards: Next Meeting

SEERS is offering up to five travel awards of $150 each to qualifying students attending the 2023 SEERS meeting in Charleston, South Carolina, March 16-18, 2023.

To qualify for a student travel award, students must:

  • Be enrolled at a college or university for the Spring 2023 semester;
  • Be a SEERS member in good standing at the time of the meeting;
  • Be registered for the Spring 2023 meeting and have submitted an abstract for presentation (oral or poster) by the student at the meeting;
  • Submit SEERS Student Travel Grant Award Application Form with attached abstract by February 24, 2022, at 5:00 PM. All information on application form must be complete. Your Advisor’s signature must be on application. Failure to meet these criteria will disqualify the student from a travel award.
  • Winners of Student Travel Awards may be asked to aid local hosts and/or SEERS Board Members with meeting tasks such as registering participants, moderating sessions, etc.

Please note that only one award can be granted per presentation. Also, students receiving awards must be present to give their presentation at the published time. For posters, the official presentation time will be the time during which posters are being judged regardless of whether the poster is entered in the student competition.
