NASA offers two annual monetary awards to both graduate and undergraduate members: The Emerging Leaders in Anthropology Award and the Carrie Hunter-Tate Student Award for academic and professional excellence.
NASA receives a large amount of allotted time for students to present at the annual meeting.
NASA members elect their peers to serve as officers. These officers represent students within the governance of the larger association, which is a great leadership opportunity.
NASA provides a host of resources for students attending the Annual Meetings.
NASA members also have the opportunity to publish in the sections’ column in Anthropology News.
