The William C. Anderson Memorial Award is given to both the best student oral and poster presentation at the annual RRF meeting. This award can only be given to a student once per degree (bachelor, master, or doctorate). To be eligible, a student must be senior author and presenter of the paper or poster. If less than 5 posters are in contention, no separate poster award will be given. Information on how to prepare and give a scientific presentation and criteria used to judge the presentations are available from the committee chair. Award recipients will be announced at the banquet. Students wishing to apply for this award should indicate their interest by checking the box on the abstract submission form.
In addition, students planning to present a paper should submit a second extended abstract to the Anderson Award Committee. The extended abstract should be a maximum of 3 pages double spaced, in JRR format. The purpose is to provide a clear background/context for the study, methods used, results, and relevancy of findings. The Anderson Committee will judge the extended abstracts for quality and select the 8 best papers to be presented as 15 min presentations during a single Anderson Award paper session on Thursday. The paper cannot be part of an organized symposium to be considered.
Application deadline same as deadline for meeting abstract. Visit funder website for more information.
