Ten awards will be given based on portfolio submissions and will cover the cost of the conference, one year's SPE membership and a $500 travel stipend.
The application is pretty simple and only costs $10 but the deadline is this Friday, November 1 so don't delay. For more information, check out the student scholarship page here or download a PDF of the official application here.
