Student Award - Book Fair Publisher's Travel Award
Share |

Deadline: June 1


Generous publishers have become accustomed to leaving books behind from their Book Fair participation at ACSP conferences. This allows the ACSP to use them as a fundraiser, selling them for 1/2 the retail price on Sunday morning of the conference. Since 2005 all sale proceeds have gone toward travel scholarships for first-time student presenters at the next year's conference. 2017 will be the last year the scholarships will be named for the Book Fair. Sale proceeds will go toward additional ACSP Student Travel Scholarships.


  • Student must have an abstract submitted for the upcoming annual conference. The ACSP staff will determine if the submission has been accepted.
  • Student must be attending to present a paper at the ACSP conference for the first-time.


  • Student must register as an award winner by the published deadline to retain the appearance on the program.
  • Checks will be delivered on-site only to those who actually attend and present their paper.
