IAGLR-Hydrolab Best Student Paper & Poster Awards
Each year, the best student presentations given at the annual meeting are honored by awards sponsored by IAGLR and Hydrolab/Hach Corp., headquartered in Loveland, Colorado.
The awards consist of a cash prize and a complimentary 1-year membership to IAGLR, which includes a subscription to the Journal of Great Lakes Research. Students may enter the competition when they submit an abstract for the presentation at the annual meeting.
IAGLR-OMNR Student Travel Award
The IAGLR-OMNR Student Travel Award is designed to promote student member attendance at the annual conference by subsidizing a portion of the costs of travel to and from the meeting. Student participation at the IAGLR conference is integral to the atmosphere of the meeting as well as to students' education. The award is open to current IAGLR student members, in need of financial assistance to attend and present a paper or poster at the annual Conference on Great Lakes Research. Travel award funds are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The amount awarded to individual students will vary, and is contingent on distance traveled and funds available. Student members can apply when registering for the conference.
Any applicant judged as not meeting the outlined criteria will be notified before the conference registration deadline. The award may be reversed and/or adjusted as necessary, and the student must pay any remaining balances due.
IAGLR International Travel Award
IAGLR will confer travel support for a Masters, PHD student or a Post-Doctoral fellow from countries outside of the United States or Canada to attend the upcoming 2013 Conference on Great Lakes Research. Application deadline is February 1. Please view details about the award, including how to apply.
The student social will be held at a local Lafayette brewery on the evening of Monday, June 3rd. In addition to in-house craft brewing, the Lafayette Brewing Company offers free pool, foosball, and corn hole. All students are welcome to enjoy an evening of informal networking and activities at one of historic downtown Lafayette’s signature venues. Appetizers will also be provided.
Professional Development Session
A special session for students titled “Transitioning from student to professional: easing the pain" is planned that will address resumes (CVs), interviewing skills, getting good references, picking graduate programs, and in general, putting your best foot forward in the professional arena. The session is designed to assist students in making the transition from the academic life to the professional one and will include a plethora of information “nuggets” to speed and improve the process
