As you are aware, the CSBE-SCGAB and its FOUNDATION sponsor several student awards. These include:

  • The Foundation will pay the membership dues for first-time-ever Graduate Students
  • The CSBE/SCGAB Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship 
  • Foundation Student Team Competition Funding Program 
  • CSBE/SCGAB Undergraduate and graduate student competitions

In 2012, the Foundation established a new program. To help our students with their travel to our CSBE-SCGAB Technical Conference and AGM, the CSBE-SCGAB Foundation will pay the fees for base conference registration and admission to the CSBE/SCGAB Awards Banquet for the winner(s) of student awards. In addition, the Foundation will provide $100 per student to a maximum of $400 per academic unit (biological/bioresource, biosystems,... eng. programs), to be used to defray the costs of travel and accommodation for attending the conference. The students must be members in good standing of the CSBE-SCGAB in order to be eligible for the awards, fee waivers, and travel support. Eligible academic units (biological/bioresource, biosystems,... eng. programs) are asked to contact the CSBE-SCGAB Foundation (basically me and next year John Feddes) by June 1st of each year, and provide the name, CSBE-SCGAB membership number, and project or thesis title of each winning student who are planning to travel to the conference site. I (next year John Feddes) need a copy of base conference registration receipt for each student who is requesting support. I (next year John Feddes) will issue a cheque to each student in Saskatoon during the annual meeting.

Full details for these award are described in Secretary/Manager Annual Report.
