Travel awards are available to help defray the cost of attending the COS annual meeting. Applicants must be COS members, and must present an oral or poster presentation for which they are the sole or lead author at the meeting (although they need not enter the student paper competition). Award amounts vary depending on transportation costs and the number of students applying. Typically, travel awards cover only part of the travel expenses, and do not cover meals, lodging or registration fees.
To apply for a travel award, the procedures depend on whether the annual meeting is being held in association with other societies. If it is, a joint Travel Awards Committee will seek to accommodate the disparate traditions of the societies and students should consult the conference web site about 6 months before the conference. If the COS is the only society involved, submit the application items via e-mail (as a single pdf attachment) to Rolf Koford (firstname.lastname@example.org).
