Student Award Opportunities

The Committee on Space Weather offers two student award opportunities for students participating in the 20th Conference on Space Weather at the 103rd AMS Annual Meeting. Both of these opportunities are only available to students who have submitted an abstract for the conference. Both oral and poster presentations are eligible.


Student Presenter Registration:
The committee will be providing several small student presenter registration grants for students who submitted abstracts to present at the Space Weather Conference. Students who wish to apply are required to submit the following documents to either of the program chairs: 1) the presentation abstract, 2) a statement of why they want to attend the meeting, 3) a statement of commitment to attend if awarded, and 4) letter of recommendation from their adviser.

Applications are due October 15, 2022, and notifications to recipients will be sent by November 1, 2022.


Student Presentation Awards:
We are pleased to offer two $100 student presentation awards to be given during the 20th Conference on Space Weather at the 103rd AMS Annual Meeting. Award certificates and cash prizes will be given for the best student (undergraduate or graduate) oral and poster presentations given during the meeting. $50 runner-up awards are also available for exceptional presentations. The considerations for an award include:

  • the originality of the work; relevance to space weather research and/or applications;
  • quality of the presentation and its delivery; and relation to the AMS meeting theme.
