Donna Broadbent Memorial Student Travel Grant Application

Students wishing to be considered for the Donna Broadbent Memorial Student Travel Grant should submit a brief statement (150-200 words) describing their commitment to service during SERSTM and their personal need for travel support following abstract submission. Statements should also address how the student’s attendance will benefit the sea turtle community and how they will benefit personally from being supported by the travel grant. Among the pool of accepted abstracts, the selection of travel grant recipients will be made based on (1) the quality of their abstract, (2) the content of this personal statement, and (3) their distance traveled to SERSTM (in the case of a tie). Students awarded a travel grant will receive 3 nights of hotel accommodation during SERSTM and will be expected to volunteer a minimum of 6 hrs during the meeting.
