2011 ESA-Plant Population Ecology Student Travel Awards

The ESA-PPE provides funds each year for students to travel to the national meeting. The student must:

  1. be the presenter/first author of a talk or poster at the meeting and
  2. be a member of the section (if you are not sure whether you are up to date with the section dues, please contact membership(at)esa.org).

If you would like to be considered, please send a *SINGLE PDF FILE* containing your CV and a budget detailing your expected expenses for the meeting to Rob Salguero-Gomez at salguero(at)sas.upenn.edu by June 1st 2011. We will inform the selected students by June 15th 2011. If we receive more requests than we have funds available, we will chose recipients based primarily on economic need and geographical distance from the institution to Austin, TX, and secondarily on scientific accomplishments (normalized by academic stage). Travel support will range $200-300 and given to the winners during the PPE mixer in Austin (attendance to this event is strongly recommended and awardees are expected to serve at the PPE silent auction in Austin, which will help fund 2012 travel support awardees).
