2002 STUDENT SUPPORT PROGRAM


GUIDELINES


Dear Student Support Applicant:

Please read the following guidelines carefully before submitting your application to participate in SlCB's Student Support Program for the upcoming Annual Meeting. In order to be eligible for Student Support you must:
  • Be a member of SICB
  • Be a presenting author (i.e., have submitted an abstract for the 2001 Annual Meeting)
  • Complete the application form in its entirety before the deadline; failure to do so will make you ineligible for the Student Support Program
  • Fill in name and email of your member sponsor or thesis advisor
  • Submit the completed application by Friday, November 17, 2000 and
  • Provide one half-day of assistance to SICB during the Annual Meeting.
The SICB Student Support Program awards financial support in the form of housing or registration fees. Requests will be granted by the Student Support Program Committee. Students who are granted support will be notified by mail or e-mail.

Those applicants granted housing support will receive complimentary housing based on double occupancy for the four (4) nights during the Annual Meeting. Early arrivals and/or late departures are at the individual's own expense at the SICB Annual Meeting room rates. Contact Micah Sauntry for current room rates. If you are granted housing assistance, SICB will make your hotel reservations for you. Do not make your own housing reservations.

You will be required to room with another student receiving student support. If you know of another student who has applied for housing support that you would prefer as a roommate, please provide SICB with their name in the appropriate space on the application. Otherwise, SICB will be responsible for assigning roommates.

If your spouse is attending the Annual Meeting, your spouse must register for the Annual Meeting and pay the Spouse/Guest registration fee.

If you are granted support of any type through the SICB Student Support Program you are obligated to provide assistance during the meeting; failure to fulfill your obligation will cause immediate cancellation of your support.



Any inquiries can be directed to Micah Sauntry at 1-800-955-1236, extension 30, FAX 703-790-1745, or via e-mail at msauntry@burkinc.com.
