The WSSA Undergraduate Research Award is now entering its 24rd year of operation and has proved to be an effective method of recruiting new students into the discipline of Weed Science. As the fall semester rolls along, this would be a perfect time to invite them to consider conducting an undergraduate research project through this award. Please be proactive with this opportunity; you are the only link a student has with this research grant and this program can only work through your active outreach and participation.
This grant provides up to $2000 for support of undergraduate research to be conducted over a minimum of one quarter/semester during 2016 and may be used to defray the cost of research supplies or as a stipend. Any faculty member who is actively engaged in Weed Science research is qualified to be a sponsor. The faculty sponsor should review the research proposal with special attention to the budget. The distribution of funds should be approved by both the student and sponsor. Proposals should be received no later than December 18, 2015. Funding decisions will be made by January 31, 2016 and presented at the 2016 WSSA National Meeting Awards Ceremony. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Stephen Enloe by email ([email protected]) or by phone at (352)-339-1319.
