If you are a student who has already been accepted to a conference, and if the presentation falls within the scope of topics outlined, please apply.  UIS students have received these awards in the past, as you can see on the website.  They have found this an invaluable opportunity to share their research with the broader scholarly community and to begin networking with students and faculty who share their interests.
