Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition 

Eligibility: To be eligible, you must be currently enrolled in graduate school. Designs must be original and use at least one extruded aluminum component. Multiple entries may be accepted. If any category yields no entries deemed by the judges to adequately address the competition’s criteria, a prize will not be awarded in that category. 

Winning entries will be those that best demonstrate the benefits of aluminum extrusions – whether by inventing a new product or improving an existing one, by achieving the competition objectives. 



AAAS Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellowship

AAAS cannot assist in obtaining/retaining visas. 10-week summer program places science, engineering, and mathematics students at media organizations nationwide.
