by ayanendu1

CHANS-Net is pleased to call for applications for CHANS Fellowships in 2013. The selected CHANS Fellows will present or give poster presentations at the Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America, Aug. 4-9, 2013, in Minneapolis, Minn. They also will have opportunities to interact with prominent scientists to learn the latest research developments and build professional networks.

Approximately 10 fellowships (up to $1,000 each) are awarded to the selected graduate students, postdoctoral associates, junior faculty members and/or other junior researchers at other institutions around the world to defray expenses associated with attending the meeting. Applications are judged on the merit of the applicants’ abstracts, financial need, and professional backgrounds and goals. Members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
