The deadline for application for the FY1992 award is November 1,

carefully the new 1992 announcement because there are some major
changes in the 1992 program guidelines.  Those changes include:

     1.   Change in application forms (format as well as content).

     2.   Change in eligibility.

     3.   More emphasis in the applicant's statement on
          the overall objectives / approaches of the research and
          training plan as they relate to the applicant's long-term
          career goals.

     4.   In recognition of the need for future plant scientists
          with broad international perspectives, an emphasis on
          research experience in foreign laboratories is added to
          the selection criteria.

If potential applicants have further questions after reading the
1992 announcement, please contact the postdoctoral fellowships in
plant biology program at 202/357-7652.
