Each year, MRCG commits funds to defray annual meeting costs for early career conservation professionals. Pre-program students, current graduate students, and recent graduates (within 2 years of graduation) are eligible to apply. The scholarship award covers the registration fee for the annual meeting, one year of MRCG membership, and hotel accommodation during the meeting.
Deadline: July 31, 2015
