Senior Student Presenter Grant


SABA will distribute donations from the Senior Student Presenter Fund to qualified student applicants. Complimentary registration (but not other expenses) will be awarded to student presenters as allowed by the availability of funds and the eligibility of the student. Students' submissions must be accepted for presentation at an ABAI event.


Eligible applicants must meet the following criteria:


The student must be a Student member of ABAI by the call for papers deadline of the event for which he or she is making a grant application.


The student must be the first (senior) author as well as the presenting author of the submission (poster, paper, panel, or symposium).


Grant Application for the Annual Convention


A separate grant application is not necessary. Apply by checking the "SABA Senior Student Presenter Grant Eligibility" box when making your submission. You will be notified of the outcome of your application prior to the early registration deadline for the event for which you are making a submission. SABA Senior Student Presenter Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants should not register for the convention until they have learned the status of the award.


In 2019, 29 student presenters received a SABA Senior Student Presenter Grant to attend the 45th Annual Convention in Chicago.
