Picture 0 for Donald R. Kaplan Award in Comparative Morphology

The Botanical Society of America is excited to announce the application period for the NEW Donald R. Kaplan Award in Comparative Morphology has begun.

The Kaplan family has established an endowed fund to promote research in plant comparative morphology, administered through the Botanical Society of America, to support the Ph.D. research of graduate students in this field of study.

Research proposals should have a strong focus on plant comparative morphology, broadly interpreted to include comparative development and the evolution of form and function. Graduate students in other disciplines who wish to add plant comparative morphology approaches to their research are also encouraged to apply.

The annual award of up to $10,000 may be used to support equipment and supplies, travel for research and to attend meetings, and for summer support.

Deadline for applications is March 15, 2020.

We are deeply grateful to the Kaplan Family for their gift and their support of the Society's mission.
