Memorial Student Travel Bursary


            On May 21, 2000, the world of marine mammal research lost two
talented scientists and cherished colleagues, Stuart Innes and Malcolm
Ramsey.  Drs. Innes and Ramsey were conducting field research near Resolute
Bay, Nunavut, Canada when their helicopter crashed.  Both Stuart and Malcolm
are remembered with affection and admiration for their boundless energy and
devotion to their scientific endeavours in the Arctic.

            Stuart was a vocal advocate for supporting students in their
efforts to develop a career in Arctic marine mammal research.  He believed
that the Biennial Marine Mammal Conferences hosted by the Society for Marine
Mammalogy were a good opportunity for young researchers to learn, network,
and develop enthusiasm from the leaders in the field.  As a tribute to
Stuart, friends and colleagues have established the "S. Innes Memorial
Student Travel Bursary" to help support a student's travel to this
conference each time it is held. 

            The award is open to post-secondary students conducting marine
mammal research in the Arctic.  Applications should consist of the
following: the student's name, affiliated institution, name and address of
supervisor plus one additional reference, level (MSc or PhD) and year of
study, and a letter of no more than 400 words describing the project and how
the student would benefit from the award.  A selection committee of Stuart's
colleagues will review the applications and select one winner.  The
committee's decision is final.  After the conference, a brief report should
be submitted summarizing how the student benefited from the conference

            The award this year is $1000.00 CDN.  Also, in honor of the
award of this bursary, the student will be presented with a commemorative
plaque at the conference.  Questions and applications should be sent by
email to Lianne Postma at  <mailto:PostmaL at dfo-mpo.gc.ca>
PostmaL at dfo-mpo.gc.ca or mailed to the address below no later than November
16, 2005.
