TSAPS Student Travel Award
Students who enter the Presentation Award Competition may be considered for a travel award. There are two requirements to be eligible for a travel award:
  1. By Friday October 5, 2007, the supervisor or department chair of the student must submit an e-mail letter in support of a travel award. The letter should have "Support for Travel Award" as the subject and should be sent to Dr. Charles W. Myles at CHARLEY.MYLES@ttu.edu. For the detailed nature of the letter see Student Travel Award pdf.
  2. Students must indicate on the Registration Form that they are either a current member of the TSAPS or that they will become a member before the meeting. TSAPS Membership is required before the travel award check is issued.
Recipients of a travel award will be notified by e-mail approximately one week before the meeting, and the award checks will be available at the registration desk upon presenting evidence of membership in the Texas Section of the APS.

To be eligible for a TSAPS Student Presentation Award, students must:
  1. On the electronic APS abstract form, students must be listed as the first author and presenter of the paper. The deadline for submitting an APS abstract is Friday, September 28, 2007.
  2. In the "Special Instructions" line, students must enter "Graduate competition" or "Undergraduate competition", as appropriate. If you do not indicate there that you are competing for an award, your paper will not be judged.
  3. Students must (a) pre-register for the meeting by the deadline of Friday, October 5, 2007, and (b) indicate that they are competing for an award on the Registration Form.
