AMS Annual Meeting Student Assistant Program
Deadline: 9 October 2015
The Student Assistant Program is open to undergraduate students, who are active AMS student members. The program provides partial travel support to students willing to assist AMS staff in administering the annual meeting. Student assistants help with various tasks, including meeting registration, book/retail exhibit, committee meetings, and audio visual requirements. When students are not working, they have the opportunity to attend sessions and visit the exhibit area. Students are not allowed to serve as a student assistant for more than two meetings. Although the opportunity to be a student assistant is fun and educationally rewarding, it is also a demanding job. AMS takes this program very seriously! We are looking for students that can work well with others, be depended upon, and are able and willing to take direction from AMS staff members. AMS provides student assistants with hotel accommodations (shared with one or two other students), meeting registration, and a small per diem to help offset daily meal expenses. Students must secure their own travel arrangements to and from New Orleans. AMS does not cover travel costs.
Undergraduate students must be an AMS student member or full member with student privileges. For current members, the 2016 membership dues should be renewed online by September 30th and prior to applying for a student assistant position. If you are not a member and would like to apply for a student assistant position, you must submit an online membership application and pay for the full year of 2016. Once the online application is properly submitted, you will be able to set up an account profile for access to the student assistant application within 24 hours, provided this is done in a timely fashion prior to the deadline date. Students must be referred by their academic advisor. An electronic signature confirms that your advisor finds you in good standing to apply for a Student Assistant position. Membership renewals or new membership applications, sent by postal service, cannot process in time. All interested students must use the online application service as explained in these guidelines. AMS is not responsible for applications that fail to transfer through.
This program is opened to current undergraduate student members of AMS. For more information about membership, please visit our member page.
Advisors will receive an automatic email of notification once the application is submitted. Applications are reviewed and selected after the deadline date or until the designated number of assistant slots is filled. A waiting list will be established after that time in the case a student withdraws his/her student assistant position. We will accept up to four students from any one school, unless the number of assistants needed is not met. Deadline: 9 October 2015. The application will close after the deadline and no further applications will be accepted, unless we have not met the number of students needed! All candidates are notified by e-mail of their standing.
