Student Paper Award

Every year the Student Forum Advisory Board selects one winning paper that was submitted to the Student Forum Paper Sessions for that year's ASA Annual Meeting. The winner will receive a $100 award upon notification and also a Student Forum Travel Award of $250 to help defray travel expenses to the Annual Meeting. Both checks will be distributed at the Student Reception, held during the ASA Annual Meeting.
