STUDENT AWARDS of EXCELLENCE
In order to encourage student scholarship at annual meetings, the Pacific Division has for over two decades offered Awards of Excellence to students who make superior presentations, either oral or as posters.
To be eligible for an Award of Excellence, the student must be:
*First Place requires a judging pool of at least 3 competitors. Second Place requires a judging pool of at least 5 competitors. Third Place requires a judging pool of at least 7 competitors.
Divisional Awards are given to students whose presentations, poster or oral, are judged superior. Ordinarily, the pool of candidates for Divisional Awards comes from among the First Place sectional winners. With the exception of the AAAS: Robert I. Larus Travel Award, no student may be awarded more than one Sectional Award and one Divisional Award. Students who receive both Sectional and Divisional Awards shall receive the highest monetary award of the two, not the total of both awards. Divisional award winners (except winners of the Larus Travel Award) receive $275.00 plus Award Certificate plus one year student membership to AAAS, including on-line access and weekly delivery of Science. Winners of the AAAS: Robert I. Larus Travel Award receive reimbursement for travel and lodging to attend the AAAS National Meeting the following February in order to present their award-winning paper as a poster.
