The Botanical Society of America, in conjunction with the Developmental & Structural Section, is pleased to open the "call for applications" for four (4), $500 Vernon I. Cheadle Student Travel Awards. Awards are available to undergraduate and graduate students who will be attending and presenting a paper or poster at the Botany 2015 Conference to be held in Edmonton, July 25 - 29. Although it is not a requirement, students who are presenting in a session sponsored by the Developmental and Structural Section will be given the highest priority. Applicants, please use the form located at http://botany.org/Awards/F_VICheadleSTA.php to apply for this award (by April 10, 2015). We ask a faculty advisor also send an email acknowledging the application to email@example.com.
