Student travel support from The Palynological Society

Logo-AASP-Color-Re-Draft-2008This email just came to my inbox, I wanted to share it with the readers.   If you are a student who uses palynology as part of your research please consider membership in The Palynological Society (and, of course the Canadian Association of Palynologists!) and applying for student travel support:

Student Travel Support Other than the Annual Meeting

The Society will entertain applications for student travel support with a deadline of December 1, 2014 for 2015 meetings other than the AASP Annual Meeting. This opportunity allows students to request support for any meeting at which they are presenting their palynological results.

The application should include the following:

  1. one paragraph justification for the request plus a description of the research to be presented (plus the abstract submitted for the presentation, if available)
  2. outline of the requested amount and how the funds would be used
  3. applicant’s email and postal addresses
  4. all of these to be forwarded by the applicant’s advisor who includes a brief explanation of how attendance at this particular meeting will benefit the student.

Application materials should be sent by email to the Chair of the AASP Awards Committee:

Martin Farley at mbfarley [at]
Geology, Old Main 213
University of North Carolina at Pembroke

There will be a separate opportunity for travel support to the Annual Meeting, help jointly with the Geological Society of America meeting in Baltimore in mid-2015.

Of note is the upcoming INQUA meeting in Nagoya, Japan (27 July – 2 Aug).  There are some great sessions of interest to a range of Quaternary scientists.
