Dear Colleagues,

The North American Arabidopsis Steering Committee (NAASC) plans to give
Travel Supplement awards to up to 10 US students, postdocs and  junior
faculty to attend the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research in
Paris, France this coming July.

Each year NAASC, a group of volunteer North American professors, raises
funds to send under-represented minorities (URM) and early-career
researchers (ECR) from the US to the meetings (and every 3rd year we
organize the ICAR in North America. ICAR 2014 was in Vancouver, Canada. ICAR
2017 is expected to be in the US.)

ICAR 2015 will be in Paris, France
<http://www.arabidopsisconference2015.org/>  from July 5-9 and the funding
application deadline is March 6th, 2015
<http://www.arabidopsisinformatics.org/icar2015/> .

Full funding application information is posted at:
Basic details:
* We will provide up to 10 travel awards ($1,000 each) for US participants
to attend ICAR 2015.
* Students, Postdocs and Junior Faculty (within first 2 years of first
academic appointment) who are also US citizens or permanent residents are
eligible to apply.
* Awards are given as reimbursements after the conference.
* You must have a valid passport to enter France.
* Awards can be used for registration fee, conference lodging, and travel
to/from the conference. US-owned airlines must be used if reimbursement is
requested for flights.
* Since these awards by themselves will be insufficient to pay for the
entire meeting, other funds must be available to applicants to cover
remaining meeting costs (registration, travel, meals)
* NAASC members will review and select awardees from among eligible
applications received by the deadline (March 6, 2015)
* Awards will be announced by March 27 (prior to the early application
deadline of April 3)
Please share these  funding opportunities to your networks.

Two Funding Categories:
(1) We plan to fund up to 7 URMs and/or faculty that teach at US
federally-designated Minority-Serving Institutions (MSI), Tribal Colleges
and Universities (TCUs),  Historically Black Colleges and Universities
(HBCU), and 1890 Institutions, and who are directly supporting the education
and professional development of students or postdocs in under-represented

(2) We plan to fund up to 10 partial travel awards of $1,000 each to
non-URMs that are US citizens or permanent residents and that work/study at
US institutions.

Thank you all for sharing this opportunities broadly.
