Student Assistantships

ASPRS annually selects qualified students to attend ASPRS Conferences with financial support which includes lodging for each recipient plus a $100 stipend. The grants also include complimentary registration to the conference where the recipients serve as Student Assistants provided they volunteer a minimum of 15 hours as assigned during the conference.

The intent of this program is to increase student exposure to the profession and to encourage continued student identification with and membership in ASPRS as their national professional organization.


In addition to a special application form available on the conference website applicants must:

  • Provide a written statement of no more than one page outlining the importance of attending this conference in relation to the applicant’s course of study and career development plans
  • Be a student at an accredited college or university
  • Be an ASPRS Student Member
  • Attend the conference
  • Agree to serve a minimum of 15 hours as a Student Assistant at the conference

References and transcripts are not required

For volunteer information contact the Volunteer coordinator for the selected conference.

Selection of the finalists is at the sole discretion of ASPRS and if no candidates are found eligible the awards will not be made.
