The Australian Coral Reef Society is offering up to 22 student scholarships to attend a writing retreat at Townsville and Magnetic Island in early 2020. The date will soon be announced, 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.
Location: James Cook University, Townsville and APEX Camps, Magnetic Island, QLD
Commitment fee: $150 non-refundable
To apply for a scholarship to attend the writing retreat please complete and submit the application form.
NOTE: Applications are currently closed until the 2020 date is announced
