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.

For the 2018 Congress in China, awards from the Wetzel Memorial Fund will be of $500. USD per individual.
