The Lawrence Memorial Award commemorates the life and achievements of Dr. George H. M. Lawrence (1910–1978), founding director of Hunt Institute (1960–1970). Since its inception in 1979, the award has aided 27 doctoral candidates with travel costs in support of dissertation research.
Nominations for the 2020 Lawrence Memorial Award
The Lawrence Memorial Fund Award Committee, which includes representatives from Hunt Institute, The Hunt Foundation, the Lawrence family and the botanical community, invites nominations for the 2020 Lawrence Memorial Award.
The annual (semiannual from 1988 to 2000) award in the amount of $2,000 is given to an outstanding doctoral candidate for travel in support of dissertation research in systematic botany or horticulture or the history of the plant sciences, including literature and exploration. The award is presented at the annual banquet of the Botanical Society of America.
The committee will not entertain direct applications. A student who wishes to be considered should arrange for nomination by his/her major professor; this may take the form of a letter, which covers supporting materials prepared by the nominee. Supporting materials should describe briefly but clearly the candidate's program of research and how it would be significantly enhanced by travel that the award would support.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
