BEANZ BioLive/ChemEd 2019 Scholarships

We are pleased to announce that BEANZ is offering eight scholarships, each worth $500, for members to attend BioLive/ChemEd in Dunedin. Each scholarship covers basic registration which includes the conference itself, morning/afternoon teas and lunches as well as the conference dinner. There are many reasons why you might apply – perhaps you are an early career teacher or you are returning to teaching after a period of time outside of the industry. It may be that you have never attended a BioLive conference before or perhaps your school can only afford to send one staff member but the whole Biology department would like to attend. Whatever your reason, as long as you are a BEANZ member you are eligible to apply for a scholarship. Individuals and schools who have not been awarded a scholarship previously will have precedence. To apply, please email biologynz@gmail.com with the following details – Your name, organisation, email address and the reason for applying before Friday 12th April.
