Apologies for cross-postings:

We would like to announce the following travel award opportunity to attend the 2017 Conference on Comparative Cognition to be held in Melbourne, FL April 19-23:

Applications are currently being accepted for the Kuczaj Memorial Travel Grant, which is given to students attending the Conference on Comparative Cognition. The grant is administered in memory of Dr. Stan Kuczaj, who was a leader in the study of comparative animal cognition, particularly within marine mammals. Stan believed in pursuing challenging topics in human and animal cognition with rigor, candor, and the spirit of intellectual adventure. The Kuczaj Memorial Travel Grant is administered with the goal of preserving and promoting Stan's interests and beliefs in scientific pursuit.

Applicants for the Kuczaj Memorial Travel Grant must: 1) be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of the application, 2) have their abstract accepted for presentation at the Conference on Comparative Cognition, 3) submit their abstract for evaluation and ranking, and 4) provide evidence of graduate enrollment. The Kuczaj Memorial Travel Grant is determined through a competitive ranking process based upon the quality of the abstracts submitted.

Grants are for $500 in travel allowances to be applied toward conference fees, food and lodging, or travel expenses. Two grants will be awarded and grantees will be selected and notified of the award by March 15, 2017. Applications must be submitted to Dr. Heather Hill (hhill1 at stmarytx.edu<mailto:hhill1 at stmarytx.edu>) no later than February 28, 2017.
