The call for Jacques Kets Award for Zoology 2019 is open

This scientific award for the best Belgian master thesis in Zoology is awarded annually by the Antwerp ZOO Society and the Royal Belgian Zoological Society. Our aim is to give promising new Masters the opportunity to build upon their achievements and stimulate them to continue their project or enter an academic career in zoology.

Award prizes include a € 1.000 travel grant, a presentation workshop and attendance as an invited speaker at the ZOOLOGY 2019 conference in Groningen.

Who can participate? Each Masters student in biology, molecular biology, bioscience-engineering or related scientific disciplines who wrote a Master’s thesis at a Belgian university or research institute during the academic year 2018-2019 (or 2017-2018), and received a grade of – at least – 14/20 for their thesis. The core requirement is that the subject of the thesis is in a zoological discipline in the broadest sense. Deadline for application is Friday 27 September 2019.
