Pollination-Related Courses


Internation Pollination Biology Field Course

NSERC-CANPOLIN is pleased to announce that once again it has funds available through the Strategic Network Enhancement Initiative to offer travel assistance for up to four students to attend the 2013 International Pollination Biology Course in Brazil.

Course Details:

When: December 2-14, 2013

Where: Lençóis, Brazil (near Chapada Diamantina National Park in Bahia)

The course website has not yet been updated but you can read about last year's course here (the same general format is followed each year). Please note that this course is organized by members of the Brazilian Pollination Initiative (not CANPOLIN). However, four spots have been reserved for CANPOLIN students. Each student will be reimbursed up to $2,500 towards the cost of their travel to Brazil and the course tuition (which is expected to be about $1200 reais or $650 Cdn, this fee also covers room and board).

To apply for a spot on the course (and travel funding), please email me the following information to canpolin@uoguelph.ca by June 15, 2013:

1) Your name.

2) Your supervisor's name.

3) When you started and your expected completion date.

4) The title of your project and type of degree (MSc or PhD).

5) One paragraph (max 150 words) explaining how your project ties in with CANPOLIN's research objectives.

All students affiliated with the Network are eligible to apply, but priority will be given to students working directly on CANPOLIN-related projects.
