2018 Student Travel Award Winner
Our 2018 Student Travel Award Winner, Hannah Levenson writes:
I was extremely grateful to receive the NCES Travel Award which helped fund my trip to the Entomological Society of America’s annual meeting in Vancouver, BC. This conference is one of the largest entomological conferences in the world where professionals from over 60 countries attend every year. At this conference I presented results from my research in which I am conducting a state-wide survey of native bee populations across North Carolina, focusing on measuring impacts of conservation efforts as well as various pollinator interactions. This provided me with a crucial networking opportunity as well as providing exposure on my research.

I would like to thank the North Carolina Entomological Society for the travel award. I had a successful trip to Denver for the national ESA meeting. The meeting brought significant networking and education. I was fortunate to meet many people who I will be in contact with soon regarding employment opportunities. I also attended many talks both within my area of study, and outside, to broaden my entomology knowledge. The trip also included a side trip to a wildlife refuge near Denver, with lots of wildlife. Thanks again for selecting me for the award!
