SIL Congress 2016-Travel Grants

Reproduced below is a letter from the Secretary General, SIL

Dear SIL members:

 I’d like to draw to your attention that the planning of the August 2016 SIL Congress in Italy is in progress. Please encourage your students and fellow limnologists to participate. SIL offers travel awards to students and early career limnologists who would otherwise be unable to participate in the congress, coming from the Wetzel Memorial Fund.

 Attached please find a document with information about these awards and application forms. The later can also be downloaded from the SIL website, at and from SIL 2016 Congress website, at  section News & Awards.

 Eligible applicants are SIL members that have not received the award in the past.

 Deadline for applications is 1 November 2015.


Tamar Zohary
SIL General Secretary – Treasurer


Young Limnologists are encouraged to join SIL and plan to attend the next Congress in Italy.
