This award is made to undergraduate, Master, PhD or other postgraduate students, or those who have completed their studies in the previous twelve months at the date of application. The early career travel award is available for those who have completed their studies less recently. Those studying in the fields of agriculture, botany, biology, ecology, horticulture and forestry or related subjects, with some focus on weed science are encouraged to apply. The award is open to anyone residing in Australia or New Zealand, but members of Societies affiliated with CAWS may be given preference. The committee may at its discretion award more than one award for each category.
