Dear MARMAM subscribers,

The American Cetacean Society –Puget Sound Chapter would like to encourage student participation at the 20th Biennial conference (Dunedin, New Zealand) by awarding one travel grant 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).

One student travel grant of $500 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.
