Nominate a deserving colleague for a CPS Award!
One of the best features of the Canadian Phytopathological Society is the recognition of the achievements of its members. It is also a privilege to recognize and encourage
graduate students through the CPS scholarships and travel awards. A real highlight of the 2017 annual meeting was the grad student video awards, and this competition will continue in 2018.
The deadline for submission of all awards is March 15, 2018.
Nominations and applications should be sent to the Chair of the CPS Awards Committee, Mary Ruth McDonald.
The only exception is the student video submissions. These should be sent to Gurcharn Brar.
Please consider nominating a colleague for one of the CPS Awards:
•Fellow of CPS
•Outstanding Young Scientist (must be under 40 years old)
•CPS Education Award
•Achievements in Plant Disease Management.
The descriptions are posted here.
All of the materials for one application should be combined in a single file for submission.
In addition to the Student Video award, there are Graduate Student Travel Awards and Graduate Student Scholarships, valued at $1,500 per student.
There have been some changes to the Graduate Student Travel Awards. These are now worth $1,000 each. The application for a travel award should include:
1 The abstract for the presentation;
2 A one page statement written by the student explaining the significance of the research and the contributions or implications of the research, and;
3 An unofficial transcript showing marks from the previous two years.
The submission should also include a short note from the student’s supervisor indicating that they support the student’s travel to the conference.
