In 2015, WPSA awarded Mariana Moraes, a doctoral student in Brasil, a Travel Grant to present her research at the scientific meetings in Atlanta prior to the IPPC.
This January Mariana wrote me to ask if I was coming to Atlanta and said she wanted to meet with me. She came to our WPSA booth and told me what the Travel Grant had meant to her. With WPSA's assistance she came to Atlanta last year, presented her paper, and had several job interviews. She accepted one of the offers and now she has her PhD and a good position with Jefo, the species-specific feed additive company. She was very generous in crediting WPSA with making this success story happen.
