A limited number of student scholarships are available. A short essay (300-500 words) will be required. Only lead authors/presenters are eligible for general student scholarships, not co-authors. These scholarships will assist with registration expenses. Applicants must be full-time students (nine or more credits) of an accredited college or university in the United States.

Indigenous Student Scholarship

Diversity in the sciences is an important component to ensure that all voices and perspectives are represented. Indigenous Student Scholarships will be awarded based on a short essay (300-500 words). Indigenous Scholarships are for participating (i.e. giving a poster or presentation) or non-participating students who are interested in attending the conference. These scholarships will assist with registration and lodging expenses. Indigenous students will need to be a member of a tribal nation and be enrolled as a full or part-time student at an accredited college or university in the United States.

 

INDIGENOUS STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP ESSAY QUESTION: Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) is knowledge, know-how, skills and practices that are developed, sustained and passed on from generation to generation within a community, often forming part of its cultural or spiritual identity. How is TEK relevant in scientific study as a collaborative concept?
