Developing Nations Travel Awards

The Botanical Society of America is pleased to have 5 travel awards in the amount of $1,000 each for the BOTANY 2023 - One World conference in Boise, Idaho.
It is our goal to encourage international collaboration and foster connections within our international botanical community by extending financial help to those in need of assistance to attend this important conference. 

Applicants for the Developing Nations travel award must be living in and traveling from a developing nation (excluding China) to the conference. 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. 

This travel grant will be awarded by a lottery. Checks for the travel award will only be distributed in US dollars on site at the meeting in Boise to the winners.
