Student/Alumni Application Deadline: September 11, 2012.
Each project or center may nominate up to two students or recent alumni to attend the conference by having him or her submit an application online or by downloading and completing a paper application form. The application must be completed and returned to AACC by Tuesday, September 11, 2012.
AACC will cover registration and lodging costs for students accepted through this application process for two nights, October 24 and 25. If your nominee is chosen, your institution is expected to cover his or her transportation costs to and from the conference.
