Current graduate students who are authors or co-authors and will present the work at the Fall Meeting of the Comparative Cognition Society are eligible to apply.
Submit the presentation via the standard procedure by the stated submission deadline.
Submit a long abstract BY JUNE 16. The long abstract should describe the goals, logic, methods, results and conclusions of the study. There are no particular format requirements but we expect the long abstracts will typically be about 3 pages longs plus at least one data figure or table. It must be clear from the long abstract that the empirical results of the study have been collected before the abstract was submitted. The long abstract must be submitted by June 16 via email to selection committee chair Dave Brodbeck.
The student's research mentor must send an email to selection committee chair Dave Brodbeck confirming that the applicant is a graduate student in good standing and that the empirical data on which the submission is based have been collected. Evaluative information about the applicant or the project is not necessary. Please provide this email by June 19.
