Paula Menyuk Award
The Paula Menyuk Award was established in honor of Paula Menyuk, Professor Emerita of Boston University and one of the founders of BUCLD, to assist student presenters at BUCLD by offsetting some of their travel expenses. The awards are funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, as well as by private donations. For this year’s virtual conference, these funds will go toward subsidizing student registration fees, allowing all students to attend virtually free. This year’s Paula Menyuk Awards will therefore be non-monetary and awarded to students who are first authors on top-rated abstracts. All eligible students will be considered for the award automatically, with no need to apply.
