The APS Foundation is seeking students who are the best and brightest in their field to attend the APS Annual Meeting. Student Travel Awards of $500 are available to students of all manners of study and scientific interest.
APS student members planning to give an oral or poster presentation at the next APS Annual Meeting who did not receive an travel award the previous year are eligible to apply.
Submissions must include a copy of the abstract to be presented at the APS Annual Meeting. Abstracts submitted for the travel award are not automatically forwarded to the meeting organizers. Authors must submit abstracts separately to be included in the meeting program
Submissions must also include a proposal for a hot topic that you feel needs to be presented as a symposium at the APS Annual Meeting. Proposals must be shorter than 3,000 characters and address the following questions and criteria:
The application must identify a graduate advisor or other sponsor in the field of plant pathology who will write a letter on behalf of the applicant explaining: 1) what the bearing of the applicant's research and/or study program on plant pathology as it pertains to human and/or environmental welfare, 2) how the applicant's research and/or study program fit into the research goals of your facility or academic institution, and 3) include a statement regarding the academic merit (accomplishments/skills) of the student.
Applications must be submitted via an online application system. Because some aspects of the application process are lengthy, we recommend that applicants review the requirements and prepare responses before starting the online submission. The deadlines listed above are strictly enforced and no late applications will be considered.
Please forward questions about the requirements or application process to award contact: Lourena Arone (firstname.lastname@example.org)
