Current students and recent graduates presenting a poster or oral paper are encouraged to apply for a travel grant from the AOU (Marcia Brady Tucker Travel Award) or the COS. This is a good way to offset costs and add a nice line-item to your budding CV!

To be eligible, students must be:

  • Sole or lead author of a poster or oral paper presented at the annual meeting. Students giving 15 minute talks as part of a symposium are eligible; students giving longer talks as part of a symposium are not eligible.
  • A full-time or recently graduated student (including undergraduates). Students graduating the semester prior to the meeting are also eligible for travel awards.
  • A member of the AOU or COS. Students who are not members currently are encouraged to join.

Travel award application information and submission portal



We plan to have lots of activities and opportunities for students. Some of these items are still in the planning stages but we will post them here as they emerge. We anticipate having all the usual student-run and student-oriented activities including a quiz bowl, travel awards, a silent auction, photo contest, and opportunities for networking with mentors in the society.

NOTICE: Students can get early registration through 20 May. This extension is to allow students applying for travel awards to decide about coming to the meeting after they hear about their applications.
