Miscellaneous

Any student accepted to serve as either a Student Assistant or Volunteer must be able to cover their own transportation to and from the conference and their daily meal expenses. Volunteers must be able to cover their own lodging during the conference.

Only those Student Assistants or Volunteers who are assigned to an ASPRS Workshop as part of their volunteer duties may attend the assigned workshop at no cost. All others who wish to attend a workshop must register for the workshop of their choice and pay the student registration fee. These workshops are not part of the general conference registration fee.

Students who have never served as Student Assistants at a past ASPRS Conference will be given preference in the application review process. It is the aim of the Student Assistantship Program to give as many students as possible an opportunity to benefit from these awards.
