Applications should describe in an abstract (500 words or less) the nature of the MS/MS work to be presented, as well as an indication of the career impact this opportunity could have.

A student may only receive a single award during their career (both MSc, PhD, and post-doctoral levels are considered jointly). Nominations are limited to one applicant per Supervisor.
A single application will ensure that candidates are considered for all three types of awards listed below (subject to eligibility).
