Student Research Awards Program
Hudson/Delaware Chapter (HDC) of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is pleased to sponsor student research awards. These awards are meant to both recognize outstanding young scholars and encourage active participation in HDC SETAC by attending and presenting their work at the Spring Meeting. Hopefully each year, we try and provide travel awards. These travel awards will include a $100 travel stipend as well as a waiver for student registration. With the invaluable support of our corporate sponsors and chapter members, we try and offer up to two travel awards to our graduate and up to two travel awards to our undergraduate student members.
TRAVEL AWARDS: Application for the Student Travel Awards include the following:
Judging will be conducted by the HDC SETAC Board of Directors and will be based on the submitted materials.
RESEARCH (Poster) AWARDS: Abstracts should be received by early enough to be included in the agenda. Priority will be given to abstracts submitted by this abstract due date. Students are encouraged to submit abstracts for talks as well, but a poster must also be displayed to be eligible for student research awards.
As timing permits, students should be prepared to give a brief overview (2-3 minutes) of their research poster in a “rapid-fire” session to the attendees of the student poster social.
STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE, HDC-SETAC, STUDENT BOARD REPRESENTATIVE
Prepared: February 2021
Revised: February 2021
Committee: Linda Logan, Erica McKenzie
Purpose: This standard operating procedure (SOP) provides guidance for the student board representative. The HDC-SETAC student board member is intended to meet all the roles of a general board member, but specifically to represent the student membership. Expectations and guidelines for the student representative are presented below.
Guidance: The student representative is intended to be the primary leader for representing and engaging the students’ interests. All board members are invited to be involved in student-oriented activities, but the student representative should play a key role. Note, it is not the intent that the student representative performs all these activities alone, but that he or she organizes and reaches out for support from others as needed. Below are some ideas on how this can be accomplished.
Generally, it is anticipated that the student representative will commit a minimum 2-3 hours/month to board meetings and student outreach related activities. The time commitment may increase for planning and execution of the HDC-SETAC regional meeting. Interested students are encouraged to consult with their advisor (e.g., match for stage in educational process, match to professional goals).
