Student Awards and Recognition

Each year one student is selected by a panel of 3 alumni reviewers as the winner of the Graduate Student Research Award.   The winner is provided with a stipend to travel to the annual AAPM conference to present their research and receive their award at the WSU Alumni Gathering.  The travel stipend is funded entirely by generous alumni donations.  If you would like to volunteer to be an alumni judge for the award, please contact us!
