Especially for Students

Whether it's your first time or your sixth, we are excited that you want to participate in the NCSPA Fall Conference. Here are a few reminders of perks and activities that are especially designed for students!

1. Discount on registration

If you are a member of NCSPA ($35 for graduate students, $10 for first year graduate students, and $0 for undergraduate students), then the early bird cost of Fall Conference is only $72. When you register, it automatically takes into account your membership status and gives you the appropriate discount. 

If you are not a member of NCSPA (though we're really not sure why you wouldn't be), you can use the discount code "Student" to get the early bird rate of $140. 

Poster session2. Present your research

Within the registration process, you have the opportunity to sign up to present at the Poster Session. The annual Poster Session is a great introduction to the conference world, can help build confidence, and can lead to connections or invitations for other opportunities to present your work. Plus there are prizes!
