Undergraduate Student and Minority Scholarships
The NSF is generously providing scholarships to all minority undergraduate students/graduate students/postdocs presenting a poster or talk at at the 2015 Rustbelt meeting. The scholarship will cover the cost of registration. To apply, simply indicate on your registration form that you are a minority ethnicity undergraduate/graduate student/postdoc (African American, Mexican-American, Native American (American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian), Pacific Islander, or mainland Puerto Rican) and that you are presenting a poster or talk. Applicants that meet both criteria will automatically be selected.
Oral and Poster Presentation Awards
Several oral and poster presentation awards will be presented at the RRM 2015. Presentations are evaluated based on two criteria: scientific merit and the presentation's effectiveness. Judges score presentations in three categories including significance, presentation and overall quality.
For 2015, we are pleased to announce that winners of the outstanding presentation awards will be presented with one of several classic works in RNA and laboratory science generously supplied by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press. Watch this space for further details!
