The SETAC North America Endowment Fund Board of Trustees established a SETAC North America Recent Graduate Travel Award in 2017. The purpose of the award is to encourage participation of recent graduates who are SETAC members at each SETAC North America annual meeting. Encouragement is provided via awards (up to US$800) in support of travel. In addition, SETAC North America will also provide registration waivers for the successful applicants. It is anticipated that approximately six awards (two per sector) will be made directly to recent graduates for the SETAC North America 39th Annual Meeting, which will be held from 4-8 November 2017 in Sacramento, California.
