Plant Biology 2018

Plant Biology 2018 travel grants for early-career scientists


ASPB is offering a limited number of $575 travel grants to attend Plant Biology 2018 in Montréal, Canada. This program aims to increase attendance of early-career scientists at the annual meeting by providing travel funds for those in financial need; increasing diversity among Plant Biology attendees is another important goal. Undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and professionals beginning their careers in plant science are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications are due December 6, 2017. Students and postdocs must include a research abstract, two letters of recommendation, and a statement that expresses why attending Plant Biology 2018 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 partial waiver of the Plant Biology 2018 registration fee for each of the 80 recipients.

Applications are due December 6, 2017, so please visit the Travel Grant website promptly to start creating your application packet.
