Registration benefits

This opportunity provides early access to register for GHC.


  • You must be available to review applications in March and April.
  • Students may be Committee Members but may not be Scholarship Reviewers.

Scholarship Review Committee

Each year, we offer GHC Scholarships that enable students and faculty to attend the celebration. Each committee member reviews, on average, 15 applications online, and provides ratings and comments to help the committee co-chairs make decisions on applicants. Students are ineligible to be reviewers, but we encourage eligible students to apply for the scholarship.

Poster Session Committee

Submissions for the Poster Session are technical. Your co-chairs will assign you posters that best represent your area of expertise. You will review the poster submissions and rate them based on criteria provided by your co-chairs.

Track Committee

Track committee volunteers directly impact the GHC program. During our formal Call for Participation (CFP) process, track committee volunteers review CFP submissions to decide who will speak at GHC. You will rate each submission based on criteria provided to you by your track’s co-chairs. When selecting which track you would like to review, please select the one that best represents your area of expertise. See a list of our 2020 tracks.

Mentoring Circles Committee

This interactive mentoring session lets attendees seek personalized advice regarding their career or academic endeavors, in small groups. The topics of the submissions will be related to career opportunities, job search, tools for success at work, or academic paths. You will review the mentors’ submissions and rate them based on criteria provided by our co-chairs.

With thousands of attendees and hundreds of speakers, GHC is a major event that requires a lot of hard work to set up and run. That’s why we’re so grateful to the thousands of volunteers who help make GHC such a success year after year.
