The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent), with support from the Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE), is pleased to announce a travel award for faculty from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to attend Evolution 2010 – the annual meeting of SSE, SSB (Society of Systematic Biologists) and ASN (American Society of Naturalists) – to be held in Portland, OR from June 25-29, 2010.

If you are a faculty member at an MSI, HBCU or other institution with significant enrollment of under-represented minority students, you are encouraged to apply.  Funds are available to cover conference registration, travel, food and lodging for up to three individuals.

This award is intended to provide MSI faculty with an opportunity to present original research in evolution, systematic biology, evolutionary genomics/informatics or other disciplines typically represented at the SSE/SSB/ASN meetings.  As such, your application must include a talk/poster title.  (Abstracts are not required to apply.)  In addition, you will be asked to provide a brief (1 page) statement describing how this award will contribute to your professional/scientific development, as well as provide benefit to your students and institution.
