RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS AND TRAVEL GRANTS OPPORTUNITIES FOR TCS MEMBERS The Crustacean Society (TCS) annually awards fellowships and travel awards in several categories. Applicants for all awards must be TCS members, and in the case of student awards, their faculty sponsor/mentor must also be a TCS member at the time of application. FELLOWSHIPS IN GRADUATE STUDIES TCS annually awards up to six US$1,000 fellowships in graduate studies in any field on the biology of crustaceans. The fellowship is to support the research objectives and career goals of the student and requires a letter of support from their faculty sponsor or mentor. EARLY-CAREER, POST-PH.D. TRAVEL AWARDS TCS annually awards up to three US$1,500 travel grants for early-career researchers with a Ph.D. awarded within 5 years of the application deadline. Extension of up to 8 years post-Ph.D. will be considered at the discretion of the Program Officer for applicants having taken a career break for family reasons. The grants shall cover travel to present, preferably in an oral session, results of their research in any field of study involving crustaceans at a TCS meeting (SICB, mid-year meeting, or the International Crustacean Congress IX in Washington, DC). Applications that will result in a manuscript suitable for publication in Journal of Crustacean Biology will be given preference. STUDENT TRAVEL AWARDS TCS annually awards a maximum of ten (10) US$500 awards to support student attendance at TCS meetings (mid-year, SICB, or the International Crustacean Congress IX in Washington, DC). Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program, be the presenter of an oral or poster presentation at the TCS meeting they attend and demonstrate financial need for TCS support of travel to the meeting.
