  • CAREER DEVELOPMENT GRANT FOR MEMBERS, SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HALF OF ANNUAL SWCS CONFERENCE REGISTRATION- DUE JUNE 20

The Iowa Chapter does feel it is very important to support our membership with educational/professional development opportunities.  We carry out this goal through many means including our annual conference, area activities, and our summer meeting, to name a few.  In addition, the Iowa Chapter will support the development of our members through educational stipends.

We are offering a limited number of scholarships for the 72nd International Annual SWCS Conference Conservation Connections: Creating Pathways to Sustainability, July 30 – August 2, 2017 at the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin.

Scholarships will be for the reimbursement of $212.50, half the amount of a full conference registration for an SWCS member.

They are first come, first serve!
