Student Travel Awards
As in previous years, ACRS will be supporting the travel of students to the conference. The amount awarded will be determined on a pro rata, competitive application basis depending on the distance to be travelled and the number of applicants. Registration at ACRS conferences is already subsidised for students so awards are for travel only. Students must be presenting a paper or poster to apply. Application details will be available soon.

More details on the conference will be released over the coming weeks and the latest information can be found on our website: http://www.australiancoralreefsociety.org/conference

We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney in August for what will be an exciting conference!
