Students are an integral part of the annual meetings of the AAC and several sessions are devoted to student activities. For the past 30 years the AAC has provided assistance for students to attend the annual conference and has organized a competition for student presentations, both oral and poster. This year is no different!

Each year AAC awards up to three different types of Student Awards

1) Best student presentation (oral and poster)
2) Student scholarship
3) Student travel awards

This year we are instituting a new award for Best Proceedings contribution by a student. It will come with a monetary award after the papers are submitted for adjudication.
