The Forensic Sciences Foundation (FSF) will fund a limited number of AAFS Student Affiliate registrations for the 2016 American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) Annual Scientific Meeting through a “Scholarship Program.”
To qualify for the scholarship, AAFS Student Affiliates must submit an abstract for the AAFS 2016 program through the online submission system or Call For Papers form. In the awards section (5b), check the box indicating “FSF Student Affiliate Scholarship.” Applicants for the Student Affiliate Scholarship may apply only once each year (e.g., the applicant must designate only one abstract as the SA Scholarship entry in the submission system). The abstract will then be reviewed by the FSF Student Affiliate Scholarship Committee.
The scholarship abstracts need not be selected for presentation at the meeting, though this could be deemed advantageous by the selection committee. The scholarships will be awarded through the committee’s evaluation of the quality and relevance of the abstracts to the advancement of forensic science by AAFS Student Affiliates. The deadline for submission is August 1.
