Student Award Program

Need travel support to present your research results?

Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) has funds to support student and post-doc presentations at national and international symposia related to research using ONC data. Students planning to present a paper where ONC contributed directly to research outcomes are encouraged to apply for consideration of an award. Awards of up to $1000 are available, depending on the level of demand. Funds are routinely allocated for several major conferences, including CMOS, Fall AGU, and Ocean Sciences Meeting, although all major symposia are eligible.

Students should apply by submitting a one page proposal to the Associate Director, Science Services (Dr. Richard Dewey) including: conference details, the presentation abstract, and a summary of the ONC data contributing to the research. There is no deadline for the award applications, but the proposal must be received prior to the event.
