North American Duck Symposium and Workshop

North American Duck Symposium (NADS) Travel Scholarship

Award Information and Evaluation Criteria:

Five NADS Travel Scholarships were available to students attending previous NADS. Each $700 award was to be used by students to offset costs of attending the symposium to present their research. Eligible students submitted an extended oral or poster presentation abstract and their CV to the Student Awards Committee. The Student Awards Committee then evaluated those application materials and selected the recipients based on the following general criteria:

  1. Clarity of presentation, including statement of objective(s);
  2. Scientific merit, including uniqueness, hypothesis(es) and prediction(s);
  3. Study design and methods;
  4. Management applications (if appropriate);
  5. Conclusions and suggestions for future work; and
  6. The student's academic and other achievements relative to his or her career stage.
