Student Travel Awards

Notice of travel awards for the 87th Annual Meeting of the CPS to be held June 12-15, 2016 at the Delta Beauséjour, 750 Main Street, Moncton, NB.

Graduate Student Travel Awards (2 awards of $500 each). A third travel award, which is sponsored by Taylor & Francis and worth $500, is also available.

Application for the CPS and Taylor & Francis sponsored awards shall be adjudicated jointly (students need submit only one application to be considered for both).

This award provides reimbursement of travel, accommodation, registration and other costs to attend the CPS Annual Meeting. The student must be in a MSc or PhD research program in plant pathology, but does not need to be a CPS member.

The application must include:

• A copy of the abstract of the presentation to be published in the Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology

• A one-page statement from the student outlining the significance and implications of the research to be presented

• Academic transcripts inclusive of undergraduate and graduate training

Criteria for selection

Applications will be ranked based on scholastic performance, significance of the research conducted, and other evidence of contributions to the field of plant pathology. Applicants will be notified of the out-come of the committee’s deliberations 6 weeks prior to the annual meeting. The successful students will be presented with a cheque at the CPS Banquet. All travel and other arrangements are the responsibility of the student.

Deadline for application extended to 5 April 2016.
