Limited funding to support travel to the 4th International Symposium on the Effects of Climate Change on the World’s Oceans is available via a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
The purpose of the NSF grant is to promote U.S. academic involvement in the International Council for Exploration of the Sea (ICES), a leading forum for the promotion, coordination, and dissemination of research on physical, chemical, and biological systems in the North Atlantic and adjacent seas. Current ICES topics of particular value to U.S. marine science interests include climate science, science in the western Atlantic Ocean, Arctic research, and science to support ecosystem-based management. Requests for travel funds are due 16 March 2018.
Strong preference will be given to U.S. scientists within 7 years of receipt of the PhD who will be participating in an ICES-sponsored meeting for the first time.
How to Apply
Requests for travel funds should be sent to Dr. Andy Solow (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution; email email@example.com), with a cc to Mary Schumacher (firstname.lastname@example.org).
