Student Award Opportunities

The 36th Conference on Hydrology will sponsor a competition for students presenting their own original research in hydrology. Student presentations will be judged on scientific content, presentation quality, and the overall effectiveness of the presentation. The competition will award first and second place cash prizes, consisting of $150 for first place and $75 for second place for both oral and poster presentations.

Contenders for the award must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Be enrolled at a university (either at undergraduate or graduate level) at the time of the presentation.
  • Be the lead author and presenter of the work

To enter the competition, you must indicate your desire to participate in the competition when submitting your abstract.
