Applications close 1 February and 1 August
The First Overseas Conference Travel Fund (FOCTF) was established by members of the Society to help young researchers present their work at an overseas conference. The Society recognises that New Zealand's geographic isolation can disadvantage emerging researchers. Outstanding research deserves to be disseminated in global venues and events, and researchers must interact with other professionals to further their knowledge and careers as marine scientists. The FOCTF was established to achieve these goals.
There are two rounds of the award in each calendar year. Applications close on 1 February and 1 August each year and are available from: http://nzmss.org/nzmss-student-support/#FirstOverseasConferenceTravelFund
