Student participation in IIC has always been welcomed, and we are always delighted to continue to offer new ways for this to take place. Conservation Students and Recent Graduates (since 2010) have enhanced IIC and its Congresses in many ways. We encourage participation and provide financial support for qualified applicants.
This now well-established section of IIC Congresses provides a peer-reviewed platform for research and work on conservation projects that is being undertaken by students and recent graduates. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who are starting out in the conservation arena to take part in conservation’s international showcase. As well as the display of posters, there will be a programmed session giving delegates the opportunity to speak to poster authors.
We are very grateful to the Student Poster Committee, who have worked so hard at making this part of the Congress happen. The Committee is chaired by:
Meaghan Monaghan and brilliantly supported by Melpomeni Vyzika, Alfredo Adolfo Ortega-Ordaz and Isa von Lenthe.
IIC offers discounted student membership, details of which can be found on the membership pages of the main IIC site.
Support for Student participation in the Congress
IIC can offer financial support to students wishing to attend IIC Congresses via the Brommelle Memorial Fund; details of how to apply for this can be found at the Grants for Attendance page.
