ASPB Travel Award
American Society of Plant Biologists
With support from a fund established in memory of Sharon Gray, ASPB is offering seven $1,000 Women's Young Investigator Travel Awards. The goal of the program is to increase attendance of early- career female investigators at the annual meeting and women plant scientists. More specifically, these awards are provided to women who are within the first five years of their appointment in academic faculty-level positions at research or teaching-intensive institutions, government research positions, or industry research scientist positions. Experienced postdocs are invited apply as well. The Women in Plant Biology Committee will review applications on the bases of quality of science and need.
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.
