Student Oral Presentation Awards

Each year the Entomological Society of British Columbia presents up to three awards for the best student oral presentations. For consideration, students (B.Sc., M.Sc., or Ph.D.) must be registered at a post-secondary institution and in attendance at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Prizes are awarded at the AGM.

Graduate Student Scholarship Competition

The Entomological Society of British Columbia announces the annual Graduate Student Scholarship competition. Up to two $400 scholarships are awarded each year at the Annual General Meeting to be used to defray costs (including travel) incurred by graduate students for participation in conferences other than the ESBC AGM.

  • 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 via email to the ESBC Secretary ( Deadline for receipt of applications is typically 3 weeks before the Annual General Meeting. Please check the meeting and scholarship announcements for this year's deadlines.
