NSA offers a number of different awards to student members, for:
- the best presentation delivered at the Annual Scientific Meeting. This achievement is acknowledged by a NSA Student Award.
- high quality publications in research journals. This achievement is acknowledged by an Emerging Researcher Award or an Early Career Travel Grant.
Student Travel Grants for ASM
Student Travel Grants are cash grants that are provided for students who are presenting their research in oral or poster form at the national Annual Scientific Meeting. These grants cover part of the airfare from your city to the city where the conference is taking place. Applications for the grant must be submitted at the same time as you submit your abstract, usually in late July or early August.
Student-only ASM events
- 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.
- Young Investigator meet-up
The Young Investigator meet-up is an opportunity for students to meet and chat informally with top researchers over a free breakfast or lunch.
