Year-Long Engagement Benefits:
The ISTAART Ambassador Program (previously known as the ISTAART Student Volunteer Program at AAIC) provides early career researchers with year-round professional development and networking opportunities. Using virtual, regional and professional networks, Ambassadors amplify impact and awareness of ISTAART activities both year-round and at major scientific meetings like AAIC. Through this program, Ambassadors gain exclusive access to the Association's suite of scientific conferences and receive personalized mentoring and career development training to ensure they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to advance in this field. Upon completion of the program, Ambassadors join a dynamic network of volunteer alumni for continued collaborations and mutual support.
Kickstart your career and grow your network as an ISTAART Ambassador! Applications will be open Feb. 5 – March 8, 2024.
“I attended a PIA business meeting during my first AAIC and it turned out to be the best decision of the conference. It was wonderful to meet a group of people that focused on related research, with in-depth scientific discussions, and a group of dedicated people that really want to advance the field. Ever since, I’ve been actively involved with ISTAART’s PIAs.”
