TCS STUDENT POSTER AWARD PROGRAM
The Coastal Society actively supports opportunities for students to present research on emerging concepts and enrich the coastal community’s collective knowledge. In past years, TCS offered awards for the best student posters which were submitted in person or electronically. Through the electronic format, in 2021 TCS opened this opportunity to its eligible members without the need for travel to an in-person workshop or conference venue.
