AIAA sponsors student conferences in each AIAA Region for student members at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The conference is open to anyone interested in aerospace related fields. Students from regional schools are invited to submit papers and give formal presentations that are judged for technical content and communication skills. Monetary prizes are awarded to the top three winners in each category.
