The New England Botanical Club
Graduate Student Research Award
Deadline: 1 March 2004

The New England Botanical Club will offer up to $2,000 total in support
of botanical research to be conducted by graduate students in 2004. This
award is made annually 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. It is
anticipated that two awards will be given, although the actual number
and amount of awards will depend on the proposals received. 
The awards will be given to the graduate student(s) submitting the best
research proposal dealing with systematic botany, biosystematics, plant
ecology, or plant conservation biology. Members of NEBC will be given
preference if competing proposals are judged to be of equal merit.
Papers based on the research funded must acknowledge the NEBC's support.

proposal of no more than three double-spaced pages, plus a single page

Committee by sponsors. All materials should be sent to: Awards
