Charlotte Mangum Student Support Program

The Charlotte Mangum Student Support Program, named in honor of SICB President Charlotte Preston Mangum, awards financial support in the form of housing or waived registration fees at the annual meetings.

Those applicants granted housing support will receive housing (with a co-pay of presently $75/meeting) for up to five (5) nights during the Annual Meeting.

The Charlotte Mangum Student Support Program awards financial support in the form of housing or registration fees. Students who are granted support will be notified by e-mail. Students are allowed to be supported by this program a maximum of three times, beginning in 2009. If you received support prior to 2009, that year or years will not count in the 3 time maximum. 

If you are granted support of any type through the Charlotte Mangum Student Support Program you are obligated to provide assistance during the meeting; failure to fulfill your obligation will cause immediate cancellation of your support.
