S.T. Lee Young Researcher Travel Award
An exchange program for young scholars between the Antarctic Research Centre at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and the International Arctic Research Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks has been established through an endowment from Dr Lee Seng Tee to the Victoria University Foundation.
This program fosters collaboration between Antarctic and Arctic research at the two institutes. The award will fund travel and expenses for a short visit to the Antarctic Research Centre at the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The successful candidates will be expected to give a talk at the ARC, and interact widely with scientists and the University. On their return, they will compile a short report for the ARC & IARC directors and the Lee Seng Tee Foundation that reflects both the activities undertaken and the value of the visit.
The first recipient of the S.T. Lee Young Researcher Travel Award exchange program was Daniel Pringle from Victoria University. His lecture on November 24, 2004 was titled "Measuring the Thermal Conductivity of Sea Ice.
