The Annual Midwestern Conference of Parasitologists (AMCOP) is a regional affiliate of the American Society of Parasitologists. Our annual conference provides for a gathering of parasitologists and students of parasitology to provide informal discussion of research and teaching in parasitology and the advancement of the best interests of parasitology. This conference is open to all interested persons, regardless of place of work, residence, or affiliation in other recognized societies.

The AMCOP Student Grants Program was initiated at AMCOP 63 in 2011. At that meeting the membership decided to establish a mini-grant program, run it for 3 years and then evaluate it for its effectiveness. A committee was established to lay out the ground rules of the program and the committee's members stayed on to evaluate the first two rounds of proposals.

Awardees are required to present results of the funded research at a future AMCOP. Three awards, for a total of $1000 are available. Two grants will be awarded to undergraduate students, and one grant to a graduate student (M.S. or Ph.D.). There will be two grants of $250, and one of $500, and either amount is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. The AMCOP Student Research Grant Committee reserves the right to award the grants to any combination of undergraduate and graduate students, depending on the quality of proposals received.
