Primarily Undergraduate Institution (PUI) Faculty and Future Faculty Conference Awards


The Botanical Society of America and PUI section are pleased to give 8 travel awards in the amount of $250 each to the BOTANY 2023 - One World conference in Boise, Idaho. A PUI is defined as colleges and universities that award fewer than 20 Ph.D. degrees in all NSF-supported fields during a two-year period. PUI faculty and future faculty (e.g. graduate students and post-docs) who conduct (or will conduct) mentored undergraduate research are strongly encouraged to apply. U.S. Residency is not a requirement to apply.
