ASPB is offering a limited number of travel grants to attend Plant Biology 2022 which is scheduled to be held in Portland, Oregon from July 9-13, 2022, and online. The travel award program aims to increase attendance of early-career scientists at the annual meeting by providing funds for those in financial need; increasing diversity among Plant Biology attendees is another important goal. Undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, pre-tenure faculty, and professionals beginning their careers in plant science are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be members of ASPB.
Applications are due December 10, 2021. Students and postdocs must include a research abstract, two letters of recommendation, and a statement that expresses why attending Plant Biology 2022 would enhance their careers. (Faculty-level applicants do not need to submit letters of recommendation; however, they are required to indicate current and pending support.) Full details are available on the Travel Grant website.
The society will set aside up to $28,750 in 2022 to support the 2022 Plant Biology Travel Award program.
Applications are due December 10, 2021, so please visit the Travel Grant website promptly to start creating your application packet.
