Student Travel Award Recognition (STAR)

STAR Awards

The Student Travel Achievement Recognitions (STARs) recognize research excellence and develop future leaders within our Society. STAR recipients are selected according to the procedures listed below:

SIG officers will review a list of those students who applied for the STAR awards when submitting their meeting abstracts, along with their abstract titles and scores. Each SIG will then nominate students to the Society's Education and Professional Development Committee for consideration. The Educational and Professional Development Committee will review the nominations and select the STAR recipients. Those abstracts recommended by the SIGs, but not selected by the Educational and Professional Development Committee will receive honorable mentions.

The awardees will receive a certificate and monetary award of $250; the Honorable Mentions will receive a certificate.
