May 1, 2012 – The 2012 WPSA Canada Branch student travel awards (valued at up to $500 per student) are intended to offset some of the costs associated with student travel to the 2012 World’s Poultry Congress in Salvador, Brazil.  Any full-time student (graduate or undergraduate) registered at a Canadian University, and confirmed to be presenting an oral or poster presentation at the Congress is eligible.

To apply, students should submit:

  • a brief cover letter outlining the importance of attending this meeting to their professional development,
  • a copy of the extended abstract submitted to the Congress.  The student should provide confirmation that the abstract has been accepted for presentation, and whether the presentation will be in oral or poster format.

Applications will be evaluated on the quality of the abstract and the cover letter. Adjudication of the award will be conducted by representatives of government, industry and academia.  The number of awards is dependent upon the amount of donations received.  Notification of the awards will be made by June 15, 2012.


Deadline to apply is May 18, 2012.  Please send applications via email to Dr. Doug Korver at
