VPS was launched as a way to give all students the opportunity to present their research to the broader scientific community via a virtual platform. AGU is also seeking volunteers to help judge the competition. The deadline to participate is September 30, 2017. Read past Geotimes Posts on the Virtual Poster Showcase here

Seismological Society of America Logo
Many societies offer travel grants. The Seismological Society of America (SSA) was able to interview some of their Annual Meeting Travel Grant recipients, and ask them how receiving a travel grant impacted their year, and their career. For many of those interviewed it allowed them to attend their first annual meeting, and as with all scientific conferences, it provided them the opportunity to network and advance their career.
