Student scholarships available

We are thrilled to announce that WCH, Oceania Gold, the Gans Collections and Charitable Fund and the Chinese Herpetology Society have kindly offered to support student attendance at the 9th World Congress of Herpetology. 

You must be a current student or have graduated in the past 12 months to be considered for any funding towards your attendance at the 9th World Congress of Herpetology. To be considered for a scholarship you must submit an abstract for consideration into the programme.

If you have not yet submitted an abstract don't panic as there is still a chance to submit one. The abstract portal & scholarship application form will be open until Friday 23 August, midnight NZST.

Please note this portal is only open to students who have requested funding. If you have already submitted an abstract you do not need to submit this again.

The Gans Collections and Charitable Fund, Oceania Gold and Chinese Herpetology Society are providing 12 students with a full scholarship which includes the following:

  • full registration to the Congress
  • a ticket to the Congress dinner
  • up to 5 nights accommodation at a University of Otago Hall
  • return economy flights
  • Dunedin airport transfers

WCH and Oceania Gold are providing 48 students with a partial scholarship which includes the following:

  • full registration to the Congress
  • a ticket to the Congress dinner
  • up to 5 nights accommodation at a University of Otago Hall

 Please note you will be responsible for your own flights, airport transfers and other associated costs.

You can apply for either a full or partial scholarship. If you apply for a full scholarship and miss out on this opportunity you will not be considered for a partial scholarship as we assume you rely on funding towards flights to attend.

If successful in securing funding you will be notified on Friday 13 September.

If you have any question around this application process please do not hesitate to contact Kate Howden, kate@conference.nz.
