ACEA awards the "student prize" to the best presentation(s) given by the students participating at the Annual ACEA Conference. Depending on the pool of students evaluated, candidates are divided into the Senior (A.B.D students at the PhD level) and Junior (students working on their theses at the Masters and PhD program) categories. Normally a student can win the prize only once. Subsequent entries are encouraged for the conference but they are ineligible for the award.
