Awards & Scholarships

Onsite Awards

The M&M meeting's co-sponsoring societies confer competitively judged awards at the meeting.

MSA Student Poster Awards

We believe poster presentations are an excellent format for all participants to engage in intensive discussion with other researchers in the field. To especially encourage students to take advantage of this opportunity and submit papers for poster presentation, MSA provides cash awards* to the most outstanding student posters (first author) each day (up to one in each of three categories). *Cash awards are presented as AMEX/Visa/MasterCard gift cards.
