Graduate Student Scholarship Competition
The Entomological Society of British Columbia announces the annual Graduate Student Scholarship competition. Two $400 scholarships (one M.Sc., one Ph.D.) are awarded each year at the Annual General Meeting. Scholarships must be used to defray costs (including travel) incurred by graduate students for participation in conferences other than the ESBC AGM.
For consideration, applicants must be graduate students and ESBC members in good standing, and must submit a single PDF file containing:
- Name and location of conference to be attended
- Title and abstract of research to be presented
- Current CV
Abstracts should be submitted double spaced, in 12 point font, and with a maximum of 200 words (based on processor electronic word count). Applications will be judged on the basis of scientific importance, quality of the application, and qualifications of the applicant.
Applications should be sent to the ESBC Secretary, Leo Rankin, at Leo.Rankin@gov.bc.ca. Deadline for receipt of applications for 2011 Scholarships is 16 September 2011.
