The ASPB Education Foundation seeks proposals from ASPB members to support education and outreach activities that advance knowledge and appreciation of plant biology. The Foundation was established in 1995 with the main goal of enhancing public awareness and understanding of the role of plants in all areas of life. To this end, the Foundation supports education and outreach projects (i.e., NOT science research projects) that enrich and promote youth, student, and general public understanding of the:
A maximum award size of $50,000 can be requested for this funding cycle. Proposals that leverage funds from the ASPB Education Foundation with support from other sources are encouraged, particularly for proposals that request a full $50,000 budget. Funds should be spent by September 1, 2014. In special cases a no-cost extension may be approved (the request must be submitted by August 1, 2014). Proposals are encouraged from ASPB members from both within and outside the United States, and projects may serve communities from any country.
