BSA will be providing 10 travel awards to students and postdocs to attend Botany 2020 in Anchorage, Alaska, in the amount of $500 USD. Eligible applicants must be a member of the BSA and must present a talk or poster at the conference.
Applications are to be made through the BSA awards portal and will not be accepted after April 30. Recipients will be randomly selected from the list of applicants, and awardees will be informed of the outcome by email by May 15th. Funds will be disbursed at the conference.
Because BSA travel funds are limited, we respectfully request that students and postdocs with well-funded advisors and institutions not apply so that these funds may go to those with the greatest financial needs, who otherwise have no other sources of funding to attend the conference.
