The Robert G. Wetzel Memorial Fund was created in 2005 through a request from Robert G. Wetzel. Following one of Robert Wetzel’s highest priorities, this fund will be used each congress to pay SIL-related expenses of young limnologists throughout the world that might otherwise be unable to participate in SIL activities. The Wetzel Memorial Fund is used for travel support of those who are presenting a paper at the current congress meeting. The first time this award was given was for the 2013 SIL Congress in Budapest.

35th Congress of the International Society of Limnology in Gwangju (Republic of Korea) from August 23 - 28, 2020

Information about this congress will be posted in due course.
