Student awards

2013 AMSS

Alaska Sea Grant sponsors $250 awards for the best student oral presentations at the master’s and PhD level. Information for submitting abstracts to the annual symposium, which takes place in January in Anchorage, is available at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium website. Awards are also provided to the two best student posters at the master’s and PhD level by the North Pacific Research Board, and an undergraduate award is awarded for the best student poster by the Northwest Association of Marine and Aquatic Educators.

Communicating Ocean Science workshop

Alaska Sea Grant cosponsors a free half-day workshop on Monday morning of the symposium week with the Alaska SeaLife Center, Alaska Ocean Observing System, and the North Pacific Research Board. The workshop provides valuable training in outreach and communication skills, including the effective use of communications technology and social media, and showcases successful outreach projects and strategies. Registration for the workshop is part of the general registration process at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium website.
