Travel Awards

We have received funds from the U.S National Science Foundation, Division of Integrative Organismal Systems, and from the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) U.S Department of Agriculture to support meeting participation of members of the U.S scientific community.

We are aiming to increase attendance of early-career U.S. scientists by providing travel funds for those in financial need; increasing the participation of underrepresented minorities and women among Plant Vascular Biology attendees is another important goal. Undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, pre-tenure faculty, and professionals at the beginning of their careers in plant vascular biology are strongly encouraged to apply. Awards may range from $500 to $1,550.

If you would like to be considered for a travel award, you must complete the application via your abstract submission. If you’re submitting more than one abstract for consideration, please only submit your travel award application once.
