The Board of Trustees of the NABS Endowment Fund encourages students to apply for the 2010 Endowment Awards. These awards are designed to support student research in a variety of areas. There are no restrictions on how the awards can be spent from the Simpson, Boesel/Sanderson, Systematics and General Endowment funds, but it is assumed that disbursements will be directly related to research leading to student degree programs, including travel to the NABS meeting. Funds from the Americas, Peterson and Fellows funds must be used to support travel to the NABS meeting, i.e. recipients must attend the 2010 NABS meeting and give a presentation relating to their research. The application procedure and guidelines are below and will be available on the NABS web site. The application MUST be received by 01 February 2010, and applicants will be notified of the outcome of the competition by mid March 2010. If you have any questions, contact the committee chair: David Lenat, Lenatbks@mindspring.com. More complete details are available in the latest NABS Bulletin or on the NABS web site at http://www.benthos.org/Students-and-Postdocs/Student-Endowment--Awards.aspx
