Student Opportunities

Student Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer students are needed for registration and audio/visual support during the conference. Student volunteers are required to be in attendance the entire conference, and be available to work 1/2 each day from Sunday through Friday. The students will work either the first or second shift (i.e., morning or afternoon). For volunteering, the student will get their registration fee waived and $25.00 per day for food allowance. This program is a first come, first served basis. A limited number of students will be needed for the conference. Those students interested should please contact Gillian Peguero at for details.

Best Student Presentation Awards

The best student papers and posters presented will be considered for awards. The papers will be judged on content and presentation by a panel selected by the conference program committee. Entrants must be currently enrolled in college, or graduate school. Students who have completed a degree but have not begun regular employment at the time of the conference are also eligible. The prize will include monetary award, plus a certificate. Students need to indicate their intent to participate in this competition when they submit their abstract. 

Student Travel Awards

Several student travel awards will also be available to help supplement travel expenses for students who will be presenting at the conference.  International students from developing countries or those traveling large distances to the conference will be favored for this award. Interested students should indicate so at the time to submit the abstract or contact the program Chairs:

*We are no longer accepting requests for Student Travel Awards.  The winners will be notified in April.
