The World Aquaculture Society's Asia-Pacific Chapter (WAS-APC) is providing the opportunity for students to attend Asia Pacific Aquaculture 2016 (APA16) in Grand City, Surabaya, Indonesia from 26 to 29 April 2016.  Funding for this opportunity is provided by WAS-APC, and Aquaculture without Frontiers is facilitating the process.
The theme for Asia Pacific Aquaculture in Surabaya is ‘Profitability, Sustainability, and Responsibility for the Future’.

Surabaya is the capital of Jawa Timur (East Java) and the second-largest city in Indonesia located on the northeastern coast of Java along the edge of the Madura Strait. The city is known as Kota Pahlawan - 'City of Heroes' - due to the importance of the Battle of Surabaya in galvanising Indonesian and international support for Indonesian independence during the Indonesian National Revolution. Surabaya was once the largest city in the Dutch East Indies and virtually the centre of trading in the nation, exceeding that of Batavia and competing with the likes of Singapore and Hong Kong.

There are five scholarships of US$500 available which are intended to assist with accommodation and travel and WAS-APC will organise and pay registration for the event.

Applicants need to complete the application form and will be assessed against the following selection criteria:

  1. Your vision of the Global Aquaculture industry for the next 10 years (40 points)
  2. Capacity to contribute to the future development of the Global Aquaculture Industry (20 points)
  3. Potential benefits to you and the sector that you currently, or propose to, work in (20 points)
  4. Ideas on what activities you believe are feasible and useful for Students that WAS-APC can undertake at APA16. (20 points)
Applicants must be willing to serve and assist with the WAS-APC Students' activities and assist Aquaculture without Frontiers (AwF) as necessary. AwF is looking for students who are interested in presenting an abstract at the AwF Session communicating issues about their country.

After the Event you must prepare within 30 days a report, including photographs, outlining issues that need to be considered by any aquaculture student prior to, during and after the Event to maximise the benefits of participation - based on your own learning from the experience.

In order to be effective in assisting with the WAS-APC Students activities role you will need to:

  • have reasonable computer literacy and typing skills
  • take instructions from the leader of the Student activities and be able to work independently.
Applications must be made on the Official Application Form – click HERE.

Closing date for applications is 5 February 2016.
