ASPB Plant Biology 2017 travel grant

ASPB (American Society of Plant Biologists) is offering a limited number of $575 travel grants to attend Plant Biology 2017 in Honolulu, Hawaii. This program aims to increase attendance of young scientists at the annual meeting by providing travel funds for those in financial need. Increasing diversity among the annual meeting attendees is another primary goal. Undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, and faculty beginning their careers in plant science are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications are due December 14, 2016. Students and postdocs must include a research abstract, two letters of recommendation, and a statement from the applicant that expresses why attending Plant Biology 2017 would enhance their career. (Faculty applicants do not need to submit letters of recommendation; however, they are required to indicate current and pending support.) Full details are available at the Travel Grant website.

The award consists of $575 and a waiver of up to $200 in registration fees for each of the 80 recipients. 

Again - applications are due December 14, 2016, so please visit the Travel Grant website to start creating your application packet.
