Applicants will either present an oral presentation or poster at the annual meeting and are currently graduate students or have recently finished their Ph.D. (either during the calendar year of the meeting or the calendar year preceding it).
Complete applications consist of a CV, a travel budget to justify the proposed expenses, and a title and abstract (not to exceed 500 words) of the oral presentation or poster to be presented at the meeting. Furthermore, applicants need to arrange for their major advisor to certify current status in a separate email to the chair of the Student Travel Award Committee. Incomplete and late applications will not be considered. Awards will be announced approximately two weeks after the application deadline.
Submit your application to the chair of the Student Travel Award Committee, currently Torsten Dikow (DikowT at si dot edu), in a single PDF document. The application deadline will often coincide with the meeting registration deadline (approximately two months before the meeting), but the Meetings web-site for details.
All awards are made in cash at the annual meeting banquet.
All registered students (whether Stopes/Pickett awardees or not) receive a free ticket to the Society’s banquet!
