Student Award Opportunities

As part of the upcoming AMS Annual Meeting (January 8-12, 2023), the 12th Symposium on Lidar Atmospheric Applications will be awarding both Student Presentation Awards and Student Presenter Travel Allowances.

Awards for the top oral and poster presentations will be given to student presenters. Students, if they wish to participate, should indicate their eligibility for a student award when they submit their abstracts. To be eligible, you must be currently enrolled as a student at a university, and you also must be the lead author and presenter of the work.

The Student Presenter Travel Allowance is designed to help offset expenses relating to registration fees, transportation costs, food, and lodging for a student presenting a poster or oral paper. To apply, students should prepare a short written statement (no more than one page) declaring their financial need and circumstance, relevance of their research to the conference, how they will benefit from attending the conference, and a copy of their abstract for the meeting.  Please enter “12Lidar Student Travel Award Application” as the subject line in the email.  Travel allowance applications are due October 15, 2022, and should be submitted to [email protected].  The student selected to receive the travel allowance will be notified by November 1, 2022.
