What are the benefits of having a student chapter at your college/university?

Networking opportunities: Hold chapter meetings to facilitate connection within your local aerosol science community and attend the AAAR Annual Conference to meet scientists from around the world.

Keep up to date with the latest research and issues in aerosol research: receive electronic complementary subscriptions to Aerosol Science & Technology, our monthly journal.

Receive funding for chapter events and activities: AAAR provides some funding, on an annual basis, to student chapters. AAAR also may provide additional funding for special events. Availability of funds may change each year and will be communicated to the student chapters through the AAAR Early Career Committee.
