Best Student Presentation Award
A generous endowment by TVF Board of Directors member Dr. Abdul-latif Hamdan enables us to recognize excellence among students presenting research at the Symposium with a $1,000 Award.
The Voice Foundation Symposium will be awarding a Best Student Presentation Award. If you or your student is interested in applying, we would appreciate it if you could please send an letter of intent responding to the following questions (as appropriate), and send it to Maria Russo at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1 along with the abstract for your presentation. Please send this all in one PDF.
- Is your accepted paper/poster derived from a Doctoral Dissertation, Master’s Thesis, or academic independent study? Yes/No
- If yes, would you like this paper/poster to be considered for a “Best Student Paper/Poster Award”? Yes/No
- If yes, please provide a detailed description of your role (the student’s role) in the overall project, as well as a description of the role of any other collaborators (including his/her advisor).
Include the title of your project.
- Submit a copy of your final power-point presentation (for poster or oral presentation) by May 1st.
“It is evident that this symposium is an attractive educational platform for students from all over the world. One of the main constraints to attendance is money. I believe that offering a Best Student Award will encourage their attendance.
