                               STUDENT AWARD
                  1995 NEW ENGLAND BOTANICAL CLUB AWARD
                  FOR THE SUPPORT OF BOTANICAL RESEARCH

      The New England Botanical Club will offer an award of $1,000 in support of
botanical research to be conducted in relation to the New England Flora during
1995. This award is made to stimulate and encourage botanical research on the
New England flora and to make possible visits to the New England region by
those who would not otherwise be able to do so.  The award will be given to
the graduate student submitting the best research proposal dealing with
systematic botany, biosystematics, plant ecology, or plant conservation
biology, although proposals for research in other areas of botany will also
be considered.
     This award is not limited to graduate students at New England institutions,
nor to members of the New England Botanical Club.  Papers based on this
research must acknowledge the NEBC's support, and it is encouraged that papers
be submitted to _Rhodora_ (NEBC's journal) for possible publication,
subject to standard review procedures.

      The 1994 Award recipient was Ms. Andrea Stevens of the University of
Massachusetts, in support of her work on the paleoecology of sandplain
grasslands on Martha's Vineyard, MA.

      Applicants must submit:
- three copies of a proposal of no more than three double-spaced pages
- a budget (the budget will not affect the amount of the award)
- a curriculum vitae
- and two letters in support of the proposed research,
          one from the student's thesis advisor.

Proposals and supporting letters must be received no later than March 1, 1995.
The recipient of the award will be notified by April 30, 1995.
Proposals should be sent to:
     AWARDS COMMITTEE
     THE NEW ENGLAND BOTANICAL CLUB
     22 DIVINITY AVE.
     CAMBRIDGE, MA 02138.
