The Student Activities Committee of the WDA would like to announce the WDA Student Travel Grants 2021. The purpose of this fund, for this year, is to provide small scholarships to individual WDA student members who plan to attend the annual WDA conference, especially to those who may not be eligible to apply for the competitive WDA student awards. This year’s conference is 100% online and grants will cover the subscription fees.
The applicant review committee will award funds based on demonstrated interest and involvement in WDA as well as financial need. Funds will be disbursed to award recipients upon confirmation of student conference registration. Students attending the conference on a scholarship will be asked to share their experience by giving a presentation at their home university (WDA Student Chapter or similar student group) during the fall semester following the conference. Please note that students who have previously received a travel award or are awarded a WDA Student Award this year are not eligible for this year’s travel award.
Deadline for submission of the application form and a letter of support is May 30, 2021.
Information is also available at https://www.wildlifedisease.org/wda/STUDENTS/StudentResources.aspx
Applications should be sent to Marianthi Ioannidis at firstname.lastname@example.org. All student applicants will receive a notice of successful receipt of their application. Notification of awards will be made by June 15, 2021.
We wish you good luck!
The Student Activities Committee
