Conference Awards

Best Conference PaperWinners

This recognition was instituted in 2005. Paper reviewers recommend manuscripts for the award. The top four or five papers are reviewed by a committee of five (the two immediate past vice-presidents and three research committee members). Authors are honored with a plaque and monetary award during the annual AAA conference.

Best Student PaperWinners

Each year, a paper authored only by AAA student members (solo or jointly) is selected as the best student paper of the conference.  Authors are honored with a plaque and monetary award during the annual AAA conference.

Graduate Student Travel Awards

AAA student members may apply for the graduate student travel awards to help defray costs of attending the conference. To be eligible, students must be members of AAA at the time of application, have an accepted paper and agree to attend the conference to present. Winners are notified prior to the conference and will receive their awards during the annual AAA conference.
