Note: The Entomological Society of Canada Annual Meeting for 2017 is being held at the Fairmont, Winnipeg from Sunday October 22 to Wednesday October 25, 2017, just prior to the Western Forum on Pest Management. This provides those who are interested a convenient opportunity to attend both meetings.  

Graduate Student Sponsorship Program for attendance at the WFPM

Background: This new program provides free registration and meals for graduate students studying plant pathology or entomology at Universities located in the four western provinces. There are three travel awards for students located outside the province where the WFPM is being held; one for each of SK, AB & BC in 2017. Each award has a maximum value of $750 based on a travel budget submitted by the graduate student applicant.

Application process: A graduate student applying for a WFPM Travel Award must submit the following application documents to Khalid Rashid by email at khalid.rashid@agr.gc.ca. Tel 204-822-7520:

1) a copy of their CV; 2) a half page overview of their research project; 3) a brief budget for travel; and 4) a short recommendation letter from their supervisor.

The deadline for accepting submissions is September 30th, 2017. Travel award applications will be processed rapidly after this date to allow students time to arrange their travel.
