To have an abstract considered for the Research Graduate Student Award, the first/primary author must be enrolled in or no longer than one calendar year past graduation from the graduate degree program in which the study was conducted and must be the primary presenter at the Convention.
An abstract will be considered for this award only if the submitter clicks on the box indicating "Yes, please consider this abstract for the Graduate Student Award. I am/was a graduate student at the time this research was completed, am the primary author and will personally present the research."
All formatting requirements described in this call for proposals apply to abstracts competing for the Graduate Student Award. Note that symposia (including subabstracts) are not eligible.
