ASHS ANNUAL CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANT APPLICATION
DEADLINE APRIL 4, 2019 - DEADLINE HAS PASSED.
All 2019 travel grant recipients have been personally contacted. If you have not received notification of a travel grant award, we thank you for your application. Unfortunately, we received many more applications than our donations could fund. Travel grants were assigned based on the rankings provided from the universities.
Please note, each year we receive many more applications than our donations can fund. Thus, it is very important that all required steps are completed prior to the April 4th deadline (including having your university submitting the student rankings) in order to be considered.
number of travel grants of $500 each will be awarded to domestic
graduate and undergraduate students attending the ASHS Annual
Conference. In addition, a limited number of grants of $750 will be available to international students. Recipients must be presenting papers at the Annual
Conference and a member of ASHS.
To be eligible, again, students must be a current member of ASHS, enrolled in horticultural science or a horticultural related major course of study and must have submitted a completed abstract for presentation at the ASHS Annual Conference (and paid the abstract submission fee).
Individual travel grants will be awarded on the basis of merit and
geographical distribution, and an attempt will be made to distribute
awards fairly among undergraduate and graduate students.
Because there may not be enough funds available to award a travel grant to all applicants meeting the application criteria, either an email or letter from the Department Head at your university ranking the students from your institution that are applying for a travel grant will need to provided. This document can be attached by the applicant or if the Department Head would prefer to send it to ASHS directly, please email the rankings to Negar Mahdavian (firstname.lastname@example.org). The document will then be attached to each application from the university. It is up to the Department Head to determine the criteria-the ranking can be based on merit, need, etc. Please also designate PhD candidate, Masters or Undergraduate next to each applicants name.
will be handled by the Scholarship Awards Committee. Applications must be submitted to ASHS Headquarters by 4 April. Any submissions received after April 4, will not be eligible for consideration.
Award selection and notification will be made by 31 May.
Travel grants are distributed at the ASHS Annual Conference. Again, you must be a member at the time of the conference.
Each student must pay to register and then actually attend the Annual Conference in order to receive his or her check (the check will be in the registration packet). Packets must be picked up and signed for by the award recipient.
