The SETAC Student Activities Council (SAC) in North America has established a "Student Training Exchange Opportunity (STEO)" to support SETAC student members in North America. This award is intended to provide students an opportunity to gain experience from universities (other than the student’s home institution), business, and government agencies that will support student advancement and training. This support fund is provided by monies raised from the annual Silent Auction (started in 2000) to help defray costs associated with internship travel and lodging, equipment, or supplies needed to complete research objectives. 

Monetary support equal to or greater than the Training Exchange Award (matching support) must be provided by the student's institution, advisor, or other sources. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
