ISNR STUDENT AWARDS

ISNR’s Student Advocacy Committee (SACom) has developed and the ISNR Board has approved enhanced student awards to recognize student excellence in academic and research work. This year, students have an opportunity for awards whether attending in person or virtually while still promoting student involvement in the field of neurofeedback. This hybrid conference will pose as a venue for students to present their work in an open and supportive atmosphere. The organization encourages all students at both graduate and undergraduate levels to apply for these awards.

Student status is not discriminatory towards race, ethnicity, gender, course of study, academic institution, professional affiliations, employment, or financial status.

  • Students should provide a letter from a university that indicates enrollment in a degree program.
  • Ideally (but not required), should be taking at least a 50% minimum class load
  • Included as “student”: undergraduates, masters, PhD/doctoral students (whether 1st or 2nd PhD), and residencies
  • Documentation to confirm student status include (any of the below):
    – Current year student ID
    – Welcome letter to student program
    – Transcripts
PLEASE NOTE: Post doc, interns, and research assistants are considered a “gray zone” and will be required to submit a request to ISNR ([email protected]) as to why they should be considered as a student.

ISNR strives to make an effort to assure students can attend the ISNR conference in person by providing a variety of opportunities. There are two types of awards:

  • Academic: for those students actively participating in the conference by submitting a poster or workshop. Please review the criteria below.
  • Stipends for In-Person Participants:  for those students who want to volunteer their time in exchange for financial assistance to attend the ISNR conference in person. 
PLEASE NOTE: Some student awards require attendance in person to receive the award.  You can submit your application for different awards if the specified criteria for each award is met.
