Dear MARMAM subscribers,

-important update:

On may 22 we posted our announcement of a Student Travel Grant of $500 to the SMM's biennial conference in New Zealand.
Since then, we have been very fortunate to receive additional funds raised by Frances Robertson (UBC, Canada) by means of her half-marathon run on San Juan Island, WA.
This has made it possible to secure two (2) grants for $750 each (instead of the one $500).  Those of you who have already submitted your application will now be eligible for this larger grant amount.

So, to update our announcement:
The American Cetacean Society –Puget Sound Chapter would like to encourage student participation at the 20th Biennial conference (Dunedin, New Zealand) by awarding TWO travel grants to a current ACS Student Member selected by lottery from eligible applicants.

During the conference, network with other fellow students and participate in the Student Affairs Workshop where you can meet with professionals in various disciplines.  You will also be eligible to win awards for outstanding presentations in various categories. 

The student travel grant application period closes Friday, 5 July 2013 (11:59pm).

Two student travel grants of $750 (each) will be selected by a lottery system from all applications received by the submission deadline. 

To qualify for this grant, you need to:

1) Make sure you are a current ACS member at the time of submission, (http://acsonline.org/support-acs/become-member/)

2) Be currently enrolled as a student at a recognized academic institution,

3) Be first author on an accepted oral or poster presentation about or related to cetaceans in the Pacific Northwest (British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska)

4) Register for the conference by the early registration deadline (1 August 2013).

 As an awardee, you will be asked to present your poster or presentation at a future ACS/PS general meeting, or in the event the recipient is unable to travel to Seattle, a write-up of their presentation for submission and posting to the ACS/PS website.

Notification of the student travel grant awards will be made by Wednesday, 18 July 2013.

If you are granted an award, you will need to ensure you register for the conference by the end of the early registration period (1 August, 2013) or your award will be given to another individual.

Please submit your abstract and a brief bio electronically to acspsgrants at yahoo.com
