Student Session Aides
Whether submitting a poster or not, students are also invited to sign up to be a Student Session Aide at the meeting. Undergraduate and graduate students may apply to be a Student Session Aide at the AAAS Annual Meeting. Advisors must certify eligibility. Post-docs and professionals are not eligible. They receive free registration for 8 hours of volunteering; if they volunteer for 16 hours, they also receive free online access to the journal Science. Eight hours of volunteer service will be rewarded with free registration to the meeting, as well as free access to Science if they serve 16 hours. If interested, a student session aide blog for the 2016 meeting can be found at http://meetings.aaas.org/session-aide-blog/.
Late in the year (November), all section members receive a broadcast email from the AAAS asking for judges
for the Student Poster Competition. If you agree to do so, your registration fee is reduced to $110 for the entire meeting. The poster categories are divided between Saturday and Sunday of the meeting.
