Student Paper Competitions Offered for JSM Travel Awards

Many ASA sections sponsor student paper competitions to reward gifted students and help them mitigate the costs of attending JSM. This is an opportunity for students to get involved by being a participant at the meeting. Students can submit papers to up to two sections; however, they cannot accept more than one prize.

Papers are due to the sections’ award committees by December 15, 2014. Winners will be contacted by January 15, 2015. Winners must submit their abstracts online at the JSM website by February 2. Some sections schedule their student paper award winners in one JSM session, while others match each winner’s topic with a similarly themed session.

Each section’s award program varies in the submission requirements and what the winners receive. For a listing of which sections sponsor student paper competitions and links for more information, click here.
