Graduate Student Fellowship Announcement
 to attend the Joint Meeting of MOSS 2012 and
 T
he 3rd International Symposium on Molecular Systematics of Bryophytes

Thank you for your interest in attending the joint meetings of MOSS 2012 and The 3rd International Symposium on Molecular Systematics of Bryophytes at The New York Botanical Garden.  This year we are offering a special opportunity to all bryophyte-focused graduate students to gain training in integrating genomic and systematic research. This training is supported by NSF funding and will cover student housing, registration costs, and breakfast and lunches.  Travel to and from New York City is not included.

Students receiving this funding are required to attend the entire meeting (June 14-23), and to participate in all workshops, talks, and graduate student sessions.  A letter from the graduate student’s advisor endorsing the application and confirming that travel funds will be available (i.e., the person will come if offered the fellowship) is also required. 

The advisor letter and the application must be electronically submitted to Dr. DorothyBelle Poli (poli@roanoke.edu) by March 1, 2012.
THE APPLICATION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED.
