The Martha Bryant Student Travel Award was established in 2016 in memory of Martha (Marty) Bryant. Marty Bryant was our ISAZ beloved office manager, and was involved in most organizational processes, and dear friend for many years. She passed away days before our 2016 annual conference after a severe stroke. She is fondly remembered for her kindness, patience, and understanding. Students were particularly dear to Marty and in her honor, ISAZ established the Martha Bryant Memorial Student Travel Fund.
Nominations are now closed.
Criteria for Martha Bryant Student Travel Award:
- Students must be current ISAZ student members.
- Preference will be given to students who have not received a previous award from ISAZ.
- Students must be the presenting author on an ISAZ 2023 conference abstract submission.
As this is a merit award, recipients will be selected based on extent the quality of their abstracts.
*Students may apply for both the Martha Bryant Student Travel Award and the Penny L. Bernstein Human-Cat Interaction Student Travel Award, but if chosen for one of the awards, they will be ineligible to receive the other award.
Award announced at the end of the conference.
