Kauri Seed Programme

The Kauri Seed Programme has been established to mentor and encourage undergraduate ecologists in the early stages of their ecological careers so they will become involved in the study and application of ecological science in New Zealand.

Kauri Seed Programme Scholarships will be granted each year for undergraduate ecologists to enable them to attend the New Zealand Ecological Society’s conference and student day. The NZES conference for 2012 will be held in Lincoln from 25 to 29 November (Student day 25 November, field trip 29 November). During the conference students will be allocated mentors that will help them get the most out of the conference. Students will not be required to present a paper or poster.

Eligibility and conditions

Applicants must be enrolled as undergraduates at a New Zealand tertiary institute and be studying ecological science or a related degree within New Zealand.
