Undergraduate Student and Minority Scholarships
The NSF is generously providing scholarships to minority undergraduate students/ graduate students/ postdocs presenting a poster or talk at the 2016 Rustbelt meeting. The scholarship will cover the cost of registration. To apply, simply indicate on your registration form that you are a minority (including African American, Hispanic, Native American) undergraduate/graduate student/postdoc and that you are presenting a poster or talk. Applicants that meet both criteria will be eligible for an award.
Oral and Poster Presentation Awards
Several oral and poster presentation awards will be presented at the RRM 2016. 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.
