Friends of Kings Park scholarship students with Fund Committee Members, Darren Harrop (L) and Vern McKay (R)
The 2018/2019 Kings Park Summer Scholarship programme is underway. We are delighted to welcome nine Honours and PhD students undertaking a diverse range of projects:
Genetic diversity of seagrass in Shark Bay
Weeds and fire ecology
Vegetation composition post-mine rehabilitation
Ecological genetic assessment of restoration success
Cryopreservation and mitochondrial function
Sze Tieng Ang
Understanding ageing of short-lived orchid seeds
At the end of the programme, members will be invited to attend a presentation by these students on their research findings.
This sponsorship has been so successful that the Friends will increase the annual level of financial support to $17,000 per annum in perpetuity, subject to annual review. From 2019/2020 the programme will be called the Friends of Kings Park Summer Scholarships.
