Student Room Rate:

There are also a very limited number of rooms available at a highly reduced rate for students ($122.50/night plus taxes). You must be a member of the PSA to be eligible, and you must register for PSA2018. Membership for students is only $25. If you are interested in joining the PSA, click here. Decisions will be made based on expected travel expenses and expected reimbursement (from PSA and NSF Travel Grants and also from other sources from whom you expect to receive reimbursement). Since expenses are likely higher for those traveling from overseas, and because the amount of reimbursement will be higher for the NSF Travel Grants, priority will be given to those who are travelling from overseas and are not eligible for the NSF Travel Grant.

The DEADLINE for submitting the request for a room at the graduate student rate is 25 August 2018.
