Opportunities for Students
ASLO Student Travel Grants
ASLO student members are invited to apply for a student travel grant. Upon registration and abstract submission, students will be offered the opportunity to apply for a Student Travel Award to help defray the cost of travel and/or registration for the meeting. To be eligible, applicants must be an ASLO student member, and the application must be completed at the same time as the meeting registration and abstract submission. Travel awards will be paid in US dollars only. The information collected on the application will be used to weigh applicants in a randomized drawing for travel grants.
The mixer is open to all students, including undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs—more information to be provided at a later date.
Alcohol Laws: The legal drinking age in Wisconsin is 21. Photo identification is required to be served to purchase alcoholic beverages or to enter nightclubs serving alcohol.
There will be student workshops at ASLO 2024. Potential topics will focus on career development (e.g., publication and grant writing, communicating science, different career paths, etc.) Further details about these workshops will be provided later.
Student workers are a very important part of each ASLO meeting and this tradition continues with the 2024 ASLO Meeting. This program is designed to be rewarding for students, as well as a great work experience.
Student workers will be needed to serve as room monitors, as well as at the registration desk, during this meeting. To help defray expenses, students will receive a stipend of $100 for working on the scheduled assignment. Qualifications include being registered as a student for this meeting and presenting during an oral or poster session.
The Call for Student Workers will be issued in late March or early April.
