ASPB Conviron Scholars Program 2019-20


In partnership with the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB), Conviron is pleased to announce the 2019-20 ASPB Conviron Scholars Program.

The ASPB Conviron Scholars Program is aimed at supporting the next generation of plant scientists by helping students build their foundation for a successful career. The program is open to exceptional undergraduate and graduate students studying Plant Biology and delivers a year-long experience which includes:

  • 1-year membership in ASPB, the professional society for plant biologists. This provides successful applicants with on line access to The Plant Cell, Plant Physiology, and Teaching Tools in Plant Biology
  • Individual virtual mentoring/resume review sessions with an established plant science professional
  • Private online group network for ongoing discussions, peer-to-peer feedback and Q&A
  • Opportunities for interaction with plant biologists who have taken different career tracks, including university research, industry, conservation and plant protection, agronomy, publications, policy, education and outreach
  • A hands-on learning program that includes career seminars, round-table discussions, and workshops that help develop skills for success
  • A limited number of competitive travel grants to attend the Plant Biology 2020 conference in Washington, DC

Participants will receive a certificate of completion and letter of recommendation after successful completion of the program.

About ASPB

The American Society of Plant Biologists was founded in 1924 to promote the growth and development of plant biology, to encourage and publish research in plant biology, and to promote the interests and growth of plant scientists in general. In 1926, Plant Physiology began publication and is one of the world’s oldest and most well-respected plant science journals. In 1989, The Plant Cell began publication and is ranked first in impact among journals publishing primary research in the plant sciences. Over the past decades, the Society has evolved and expanded to provide a forum for molecular and cellular biology as well as to serve the basic interests of and to promote the advancement of plant science.
