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 38th Annual Meeting, which will be held from 12–16 November 2017 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Requirements and Limitations
Applicants must be a current SETAC North America recent graduate member in good standing. Applications will be judged based on merit and financial need. To apply, please fill out the online application form. The deadline is 7 July 2017.
Award recipients will be asked to create a conference report outlining the experience the award winner gained from attending the meeting, which will be shared with the winner’s supervisor and SETAC North America.
