Student Travel Grant

The Student Activities Committee of the WDA would like to announce the Student Small Travel Grants Program for the WDA-Australasian Conference. The purpose of this fund is to provide 3 free registrations to individual WDA-A student members who plan to attend the annual WDA-A conference. Students who are not WDA-A student members are NOT eligible to apply for this travel grant. The applicant review committee will award funds based on demonstrated interest and involvement in WDA/WDA-A as well as financial need. Funds will be disbursed to award recipients at the annual WDA-A conference upon confirmation of student conference registration. Students attending the conference on a travel scholarship will be asked to share their experience by giving a presentation at their home university (WDA-A Student Chapter or similar student group) during the next semester following the conference. 

Deadline for submission of the application form and a letter of support is July 30th, 2019. Applications should be sent to Marianthi Ioannidis at wdatravelgrant@gmail.com. All student applicants will receive a notice of successful receipt of their application. Notification of awards will be made by August 15th, 2019.

General WDA-A Conference and Meeting Information

A highlight of the Australasian section is its Annual Conference. These are typically held away from capital cities, at wilderness locations of major interest to members. Biologists and conservationists working in the local area are invited to share in the meeting.

Everyone is encouraged to present a talk on anything related to wildlife health - e.g. wildlife disease, biology, ecology, management, whether cutting edge science, case studies or interesting stories. Past conference proceedings are available for WDA-A members.

In addition to the scientific programme there are field trips, bush walks, and a friendly atmosphere that encourages the sharing of knowledge and ideas. Camping and informal accommodation is usual, and families and friends are welcome.

Previous Conference Proceedings are available to WDA members. Follow link to Login (Once you login you will be directed to the member resources area).
