Student Travel Awards

Graduate students submitting abstracts can also apply for a limited number of ACT Student Travel Awards in the amount of $1,000. Recipients must present a poster at this meeting. To be considered for a Student Travel Award, you must select the button that says “Would you like to be considered for the ACT Student Travel Award?” when submitting your poster.
