ASPB is offering a limited number of Sharon Gray Women’s Young Investigator Travel Awards to attend Plant Biology 2019 which will be held next year in San Jose, California, from August 3-7, 2019.
Sharon Gray had a passion for and commitment to mentoring women in science. By naming the WYITAs for Sharon, we honor her contributions and seek to continue her legacy. The goal of the program is to increase attendance of early-career female investigators who are within the first five years of their appointment in academic faculty-level positions, government research positions, or industry research scientist positions, as well as experienced postdocs.
Awardees must hold positions at an academic, industrial, or government institution. The Society with support from a fund established in memory of Sharon Gray has allotted $8000 to be given out in increments of $1000 for this program.
