Society of Wetland Scientists -- Deadline: November 7, 2014
Dr. Lougheed is the coordinator of a NSF sponsored program that provides travel awards and career mentoring to undergraduates from underrepresented groups at our Society of Wetland Sciences annual meeting. The upcoming meeting is May 31-June 4, 2015 in Providence, Rhode Island. In order to meet our goal of increasing diversity in wetland science fields, the Society brings the students to our national meeting and matches them with mentors for the duration of the meeting. The areas of interest of the student participants can range from freshwater to marine and involve a wide variety of organism types.
