Application Deadline: October 25 2004

Who is eligible?
Graduate students registered in a Canadian university and presenting either a poster or an oral presentation at the SCL or CCFFR annual meeting.

How much can one expect to get?
The committee attempts to distribute funds fairly among participants to the two conferences and to foster participation from all parts of Canada. Consequently the amounts awarded are based on available funding and are generally proportional to the cost of traveling to the conference.

In 2004, all 48 applicants received an award. Awards typically range from $200 to $500.

When and how results will be made public?
The committee will meet a week or two after the application deadline, and applicants and respondents will be notified by email.
