SEERS is offering up to five travel awards of $150 each to qualifying students attending the 2022 SEERS meeting in Jekyll Island, Georgia, March 24-26, 2022.
To qualify for a student travel award, students must:
- Be enrolled at a college or university for the Spring 2022 semester;
- Be a SEERS member in good standing at the time of the meeting;
- Be registered for the Spring 2022 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 28, 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.
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. If more applications are received than the number of grants available, priority will be given (a) to students who have not won an award in the past two years and (b) based on financial need.
The Form with advisor’s signature and attached abstract must be emailed by 5:00 PM on Monday, February 28, 2022, to Jessica Reichmuth (firstname.lastname@example.org). PDF files are preferred. Recipients of the travel awards will be notified by March 21, 2022 and are encouraged to attend the SEERS Business Meeting to receive their checks. You may direct any questions to Jessica Reichmuth (email@example.com) before the deadline.
