PACPI AND UPV SIGN MOA ON STUDENT RESEARCH GRANT FOR PHIL. BSC

 

 
November 15, 2016 - PACPI and University of the Philippines Visayas signed a Memorandum of Agreement to encourage student participation in Fisheries Improvement Projects for Blue Swimming Crab, Portunus pelagicus, through the Student Research Grant.
 
Last October 5, PACPI announced in its official Facebook page the availability of research grants for student theses aimed to support implementation of BSC projects. Priority topics include SPR assessment in key landing areas, by-catch analysis and other species interactions of BSC fishery, evaluation of current management status and stock enhancement strategies, and population genetics.
 
 
  
 

Qualified research topics can avail a subsidy of Php 25,000 for undergraduate thesis and Php 50,000 for graduate thesis (M.S. only) and many more entitlements.

 

“Academe plays a vital role in environmental protection and conservation being a birthplace of knowledge. And U.P. Visayas itself has championed works in the fishery science. Engaging with them through our young, brilliant students will definitely go a long way”, said Josette Genio, Program Director of PACPI.

 

 

Furthermore, PACPI plans to reach out to other Fisheries Schools to widen the scope of the project by next year. More than a grant, it will also help the less fortunate but deserving students to fulfill their theses requirements at a lesser burden.
