NAASC has applied for funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation,
Department of Energy, and Department of Agriculture to award free
registration funding to U.S. early career scientists at the 22nd
International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (June 22-25, 2011;
University of Wisconsin- Madison.)

Application Due Date: March 7, 2011

Applicants must be plant biology researchers who work at accredited
universities or institutions in the U.S. The majority (if not all) funding
will go to researchers who are U.S. CITIZENS OR PERMANENT RESIDENTS. We
comply with the requirements of the agencies that fund these awards. We hope
to award a few registration waivers to non-U.S. citizens working in U.S.
labs if at all possible.

Since these awards by themselves will be insufficient to pay for the entire
meeting other funds must be available to applicants to cover the additional
costs. Awards will be announced by March 24 (1 week before the early
registration deadline) and awardees will receive instructions on how to
register without submitting registration payment.

(1) Applicants must be full-time plant biology researchers in accredited
American universities or institutions. (2) Only graduate students,
postdoctoral researchers and early-career faculty (in the first 2 years of
first academic appointment) will be considered for funding. (3) Applicants
must submit an abstract to the meeting (for poster and/or oral
presentation.) You do not have to submit an abstract to the conference
before award notifications are given but if selected, you must submit an
abstract before the final deadline and give a poster or oral presentation.
(4) Applicants from NSF AT2010-funded labs will be given lower priority for
