The Outstanding Student Paper Awards (OSPAs) promote, recognize and reward undergraduate, Master’s and PhD students for quality research in the Earth and space sciences. It is a great honor for young scientists at the beginning of their careers. The process relies entirely on volunteer judges. Typically the top 3-5% of presenters in each Section or Focus Group are awarded an OSPA and all judged students are provided feedback. Click on each OSPA role below to find out more information.
