The Australian Coral Reef Society is offering up to 22 student scholarships to attend a writing retreat at Townsville and Magnetic Island in April 2020. The applications will open in early January, please check back for updates.
The end goal of this workshop is to produce a complete first draft of a manuscript for supervisor feedback or submission. Students are expected to have a completed data set, which they have discussed with supervisors/collaborators before the start of the retreat. The retreat will be led by a group of experienced researchers and the format will consist of short directed talks, followed by writing time and peer-editing.
Scholarships to attendees will include accommodation, catering, and travel expenses. As spaces are limited we are asking for a small financial contribution from each successful applicant to show their agreed commitment to attending.
