Student Presentation Proposal

NOTE: You should get a confirmation page with a submission number when you submit this form. If you do not, please email Keith Trahan (

Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in at least two courses per semester during the 2017-2018 academic year are eligible to submit proposals on evaluation methods and/or findings of projects for which they have had substantial responsibility and involvement.

The top three proposals submitted will be chosen as 30-minute oral presentations to be integrated into full 90-minute concurrent sessions. These sessions will allow 20 minutes for each presenter and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Each individual proposer selected for a concurrent session will receive a$400 stipendPlease note that while other individuals may contribute to a session, only the individual proposer will receive a stipend. A proposer may share their stipend among other contributors.

A small set of remaining proposals will also be chosen to present during a special student poster session held during the main conference reception on Monday night, a highlight of the conference. This provides students with the opportunity to discuss evaluation methods and/or findings in a less formal setting. Students selected for poster presentations – again, individual proposers only – will receive a $100 stipend to attend the conference.

All students accepted to present, for either concurrent or reception poster sessions, will have their conference attendance fee waived. Plenary session meals will also be provided to these student participants compliments of EERS. Hotel accommodations are not covered for presenters. Presenters should contact the conference hotel to make reservations.
