2023 - Graduate Student Dissertation Award in Phylogenetic Comparative Plant Biology

The Botanical Society of America seeks applications for the Graduate Student Dissertation Award in Phylogenetic Comparative Plant Biology.

Thanks to an anonymous donor and long-time BSA member, the Society established an endowed fund to support the Ph.D. research of graduate students in the area of phylogenetic comparative plant biology, broadly speaking, from genome to whole organism. Research proposals for the award should have a strong focus on questions that address phylogeny of a group of organisms or trait evolution across one or more clades or biotic relationships between lineages that are phylogenetically patterned. Graduate students in other disciplines whose work may bring novel insights into comparative plant biology are also encouraged to apply.

The 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. It is anticipated that the award will be made annually.

Applicants and their advisors must be members of the Botanical Society of America and are advised to join the BSA if they are not already members, to facilitate the application process. International students are welcome to apply. Graduate students must have advanced to candidacy or be at a comparable stage in their doctoral program.
