New Postgraduate Scholarship
The Biological Survey has initiated a postgraduate award to encourage interest in the study of faunistics in Canadian habitats by providing further support to students working on the biodiversity of insects or other terrestrial arthropods in Canada.
The $1000 award will be administered by the Entomological Society of Canada (ESC), and will be awarded every second year, alternating with the Keith Kevan award, and therefore given in 2004, 2006, etc.
The Survey has arranged for start-up funding for the
award but more donations will help ensure the long-term stability and growth
of the fund. To make a donation please send a cheque to: The Entomological
Society of Canada, 393 Winston Avenue
Applicants must be post-graduate students at the time of application, be studying at a Canadian university, and be carrying out a project on insect (or terrestrial arthropod) faunistics in a Canadian habitat.
