Q1: If I submit my abstract application does that mean I automatically applied for the travel scholarship or vice versa?A: No. If you would like to apply for a travel scholarship, you must submit a separate application for Travel Scholarships.
Q2: Can I present my research with a partner who worked on the same project?
A: No. We do not allow dual presenters with the same poster. The purpose for presenting a poster is to allow you to have a one-on-one conversation with a mentor judge and to practice presenting your research on your own.
Q3: If there are two presenters working on the same project, can we both submit the same abstract?
A: No. You may not submit the same abstract. Each applicant must submit an abstract written in their own words.
Note: If identical abstracts are submitted, all applications will be immediately disqualified from 2017 SACNAS.
