The American Association of Physical Anthropologists awards seven prizes to outstanding student presentations at the annual meeting. For a list of these and their descriptions, please visit the Student Awards page.
The eligibility requirements for competing are also outlined in detail on the Student Presentation awards. Please note that the first author of the presentation must be the student who is competing for a prize.
If you are eligible, the next step is to submit a summary of your presentation using the form below by midnight March 1, 2020.
You will want to prepare your submission information ahead of time, as you cannot save the page and come back to edit and submit later. Here is a list of the information and materials needed:
If two student co-authors contributed equally to the paper and wish to be considered as co-principal investigators (co-PI’s) of the paper, please fill out the form below using the first author's information. Check the box indicating co-PI status. Then, send an email to the Chair of the Student Programs Committee, Christina Torres-Rouff, with the second student's name to include with the entry. Should a two co-PI's win an award, they will each receive a check for half the amount of the total award.
Three judges will be assigned to evaluate each presentation. Winners will be announced at the Annual Meetings Closing Reception at 6pm on Saturday, April 18, 2020.
Everyone who enters the competition will receive a short review of their presentation from one of the judges within two weeks of the meeting.
If you have any questions, please contact the Chair of the Student Programs Committee, Christina Torres-Rouff.
