Searching for Our Next ISHI Student Ambassador

Meeting UpdateAnnouncement

Are you a student pursuing a degree in forensic science? Are you passionate about sharing your research with future generations? Can you “hashtag this” quicker than you can pipette?

Would you like to win free registration for ISHI 31 in San Antonio? If so, we invite you to apply to become an ISHI Student Ambassador.



As a student, you know that it’s important to network with those in the field who can further your research or assist you in obtaining a job after you graduate. But networking can be intimidating! As an ISHI Student Ambassador, you’ll make connections before you even arrive in San Antonio. We will introduce you and your research on our website and social channels, introducing you to other attendees and jumpstarting the networking process.


Is there an expert in the field that you’d love to meet? Let us introduce you!


You’ll also have access to all networking functions, including the Welcome Reception and off-site event at Knibbe Ranch.


Learn about the latest techniques and technologies over two and a half days in the general sessions. You’ll also be granted complimentary registration to the pre and post-conference workshops, which will provide you with information that you can take back to the lab with you.


Is the stress of looking for a job after you graduate wearing on you? Each year, ISHI hosts over 50 vendors in our exhibit hall. You’ll have access to the exhibition area to chat with potential employers and being an ambassador will look great on your resumé!


You’re never too young to make a difference! As an ISHI Student Ambassador, you’ll have a chance to share your passion for forensic DNA with your peers and future generations. Present your scientific poster to an in-person audience of over 900 people, including mentors you’ll be able to take selfies with later. We’ll also record a video interview of your poster presentation to be shared on our social channels later, leading to further connections.
