SWS Multicultural Mentoring Program (SWaMMP)
GRADUATE Student Travel Award Application 2023
The SWS Multicultural Mentoring Program (SWaMMP) was created to increase diversity in the Society and the field of wetland science. Students with an interest in wetland sciences, ecology, coastal marine sciences, environmental sciences and related fields are encouraged to apply. The Annual Meetings offer students valuable career mentoring and exposure to career options in the wetland sciences. In addition to attending paper presentations and general meeting events, the students will participate in special activities organized for their benefit throughout the week. The SWS awards are supported by the National Science Foundation, SWS Chapters and the SWS Human Diversity Committee.
