ASPB is a professional society devoted to the advancement of the plant sciences. It publishes two world-class journals and organizes conferences, and other activities that are key to the advancement of the science.

ASPB is offering a limited number of travel grants to attend the Plant Biology 2017 Annual Meeting which will be held next year in Honolulu, HI, from June 24-28, 2017.

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 the annual meeting attendees is another primary goal.

Please Note: Submission of an abstract as part of the Travel Grant application is a distinct process from submitting an abstract for presentation at Plant Biology 2017 and must be received by Wednesday, December 14, 2016 (11:59 p.m. EDT). To have your work considered for a short oral concurrent symposia at Plant Biology 2017, you must submit your abstract through the regular meeting abstract system by January 30, 2017.

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