Free Registration for 50 Students
A select number of students will have the opportunity to earn a registration fee waiver, thanks to a sponsorship from Louisiana Sea Grant.
Twenty-five students will be awarded Student Conference Scholarships to attend State of the Coast 2020 with free registration. Students giving talks or presenting posters will be given preference for scholarships. Another 25 students will be offered Student Volunteer Worker opportunities, through which they will be provided free registration in exchange for completing 10 hours of volunteer work at the conference.
If you apply for a scholarship/worker opportunity during the early bird registration period and are denied, you will still be able to attend State of the Coast at the early bird rate.
