The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is pleased to announce that a limited number of travel awards were made available through the generosity of the Maze-Landeau Graduate Student Fund for Excellence. These awards were competitive and are for full-time graduate students, including Marine Conservation and Policy students, to attend and present a paper or a poster at a national or international professional society meeting.

Applications were submitted to the Associate Dean for Education Dr. Henry Bokuniewicz with a brief description of the meeting to be attended, an abstract of the paper or poster, and a letter of support from the advisor that discussed the importance of the meeting for the applicant, financial need and progress toward degree. The Faculty Council reviewed the applications and the winners are listed below:
