One of the most important roles of AMSA is to develop and encourage our student members. The AMSA Allen Award is a grant of $2,500 to support an outstanding postgraduate student to attend an international conference, with the aim to gain experience and serve as an ambassador for Australian marine science. The Allen Award is in memory of Kay Radway and Rosa Allen who were both active on AMSA Council for many years and is supported by a bequest from the estate of the late K Radway Allen since June 2008.
This year our student ambassador will be Mr Phil Bouchet from the University of Western Australia who will attend the 4th International Marine Conservation Congress at St John's in Canada.
AMSA membership is open to those working and studying in all discplines of marine science. Supporting AMSA through membership provides direct support for efforts in marine science research.
