Are you a student or recent graduate from an underrepresented group who is interested in herpetology and ichthyology? Would you like to attend and/or present at the Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists in July 2022?
Check out this opportunity!
In conjunction with the symposium titled Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Ichthyology and Herpetology, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will be supporting ten students or recent graduates to attend the Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists (JMIH) in Spokane, Washington from July 27-31, 2022. Travel from within the U.S., lodging, registration, and food will be covered. Unfortunately, international travel to the U.S. cannot be covered due to NSF restrictions.
The specific goal is to make attendance possible for students and recent graduates from underrepresented groups who do not have resources to attend the meeting through other sources. We especially encourage undergraduates, master’s students, and recently graduated students to apply. Eligible students will be selected using a raffle system and will be contacted by March 11, 2022.
Students do not need to present research at the meeting to be eligible for this funding.
In addition to receiving funding, selected applicants will participate in the JMIH mentorship program: https://ssarherps.org/2022/02/jmih-mentorship-program-2022/
Please fill out applications at: https://forms.gle/CKugu8mtam5h9XJMA
All applications must be received by 5 pm Pacific Time on March 7, 2022.
Note: Participating professional societies also offer funding to support student travel to the meeting. For more information, please check their websites:
