Student Travel Awards Information

Each year, VSS grants up to 20 Student Travel Awards for excellent contributions from graduate students. Awards of $500 are given to eligible students on a competitive basis to help defray the cost of attending the annual meeting.

Guidelines for Applications

To be considered, each applicant must be the first author of a submitted abstract (both talks and poster presentations are eligible) and a current 2020 student member of VSS. Past award recipients are not eligible. You must indicate that you are applying for a Student Travel Award when you submit your abstract.
