NOTE: Following the new AAG guidelines, each paper presentation will be 15 minutes total (10 minutes + 5minutes for questions). This is a change from the previous length, which was 20 minutes total.

Please share the following ELDAAG Meeting opportunities with faculty and students in your departments!

➢ ELDAAG Student Presentation Competition. All students presenting papers or posters are automatically entered in the competition when they register as a student. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash awards for PhD, MA and BA/BS students.

➢ AAG Council Awards for Outstanding Undergraduate and Graduate Student Paper at a Regional Meeting. This competition is separate from the one above. Designed to encourage undergraduate/graduate student participation at AAG Regional Division meetings, it also supports their attendance at AAG Annual Meetings. The paper must authored by students only. The awardee will receive $1,000 from ELDAAG for use towards their registration and travel costs to the April 2021 AAG Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA.
