NZPPS Conference Travel Grant for Students

The NZ Plant Protection Society may, from time to time, make monetary grants to students to assist them to attend and present papers at the annual NZ Plant Protection Conference. Grants may be awarded, on a competitive basis, to individual students from whom research papers have been accepted for presentation at the Conference. Other grants may be awarded to groups of students travelling together to encourage greater attendance at, and participation in, the Conference by students with an interest in a career in plant protection.

Applications by individual students must contain a copy of the applicant’s academic record, and a brief supporting statement from the applicant’s supervisor. Applications by student groups must be made by a member of the Society from the teaching staff who will supervise the group’s attendance at the Conference. A brief outline of why each member of a group should be financially supported by the Society must be provided.

Applications for this grant are to be received by the secretary by 15 May in the year of the Conference (which is held each August).
