Student Mentoring Group
The Student Mentoring Group aims to foster a supportive environment for our NSA student members in their studies and future careers in nutrition science.
NSA offers a number of different awards for student members. These are for:
- Best presentations by student NSA members at the Annual Scientific Meeting
- High quality publications in research journals: the Emerging Researcher Award and the Early Career Travel Grant
Student Travel Grants for ASM
These cash grants are provided for students who are presenting their research in oral or poster form at the national Annual Scientific Meeting. They are based on the airfare from your city to the city where the conference is taking place (though it should be noted that NSA provides only part of the standard airfare). Applications must be submitted at the same time as you submit your abstract, usually in late July or early August.
Student-only Events at the ASM
- Student Masterclass
A student masterclass is held each year immediately preceding the ASM. It is free if you are a student and have paid to attend the conference. For copies of presentations at these events, see the bottom of this page.
- Young Investigator Breakfast
This is an opportunity to meet and chat informally with top researchers over a free breakfast.
