Thank you to this year’s Travel Grant sponsors, Bass Pro Shops (Platinum Sponsor) and the Student Development Working Group (Contributor). Through their generous contributions, The Wildlife Society was able to issue 18 travel grants and provide additional complimentary conference registrations to over a dozen other students and early career professionals.


The Wildlife Society is excited to announce the availability of travel grants for TWS student and early career members presenting a technical paper or poster during TWS’ 2023 Annual Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.

Travel grants of up to $500 and complimentary conference registration will be awarded to a limited number of applicants. Two travel grant recipients will also receive an additional $500 scholarship thanks to the generosity of past TWS Aldo Leopold Memorial Scholarship recipients. The Aldo Leopold Memorial Student Scholarship is awarded each year to the two highest ranked travel grant applications.

Applicants must meet all of the following eligibility standards:

  • An Active Member of The Wildlife Society,
  • A student or recent graduate with a degree received during 2021-2023,
  • Primary author of an accepted abstract that you are presenting.

Applications and all supporting materials for travel grants must be received by July 5, 2023.

  • Academic degree program
  • Graduation year
  • Abstract ID, title, and description
  • Draft of presentation slide deck or poster
  • 200-word description of how attending a TWS Annual Conference would benefit you
