American Society of Plant Taxonomists
2012 Research Grants for Graduate Students
The American Society of Plant Taxonomists is pleased to announce the Society’s annual competition for research grants for graduate student investigators. Support is available for both masters and doctoral students to conduct fieldwork, herbarium studies, and/or laboratory research in any area of plant systematics. No award will exceed $1000, and it is unlikely that proposals from previous recipients will be funded. Proposals will be funded on the basis of merit, regardless of the research area within systematics.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Society’s Awards and Honors Committee and must include the following:
- Curriculum vitae;
- Proposal (the text, including figures but excluding literature cited, should not exceed two single-spaced pages) that describes the research to be conducted, emphasizing the role the grant funds will play;
- Itemized budget.
