2011 Margaret C. Etter Student Lecturer Awards

Each Scientific Interest Group (SIG) has the opportunity to select one student to receive an award and to present a lecture in one of the sessions organized by that SIG. Selections are based upon submitted abstracts and are independent of whether the student originally requested an oral or poster presentation.  Award winners are determined by the elected officers of the SIGs. Students who are selected receive a monetary award of $250 and a certificate to be presented at the beginning of their lecture.
