WESTPAC Young Scientist Travel Grant

To facilitate international exposure of early career scientists, WESTPAC initiated the “WESTPAC Young Scientist Travel Grant” program in support of young scientists to participate in the WESTPAC International Scientific Symposia with a view to assisting them to develop research network, advance their knowledge and engage in marine science cooperation.

With the financial support of the Government of Vietnam, Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST), and State Oceanic Administation of China (SOA), 50 young scientists have been provided with partial and full travel support for their participation in the 9th International Scientific Symposium, 22-25 April 2014, Nha Trang, Vietnam.
