The Botanical Society of America is pleased to offer 10 travel awards in the amount of $1,000 each to the BOTANY 2022 conference in Anchorage, Alaska.

Applicants must be current members of the Botanical Society of America. Applicants must also present an oral presentation or poster during the conference. Applicants must not have won this award the year before. Abstract submission for the conference will open in February 2022.

In the award submission you will be required to provide your name, institutional affiliation, address and email, titel of your abstract, a link to your submitted abstract and a one-two paragraph statement about why attending BOTANY 2022 is important to you and your career in the botanical sciences.
