Join the AGA

Ecological, Evolutionary, and Conservation Genomics (EECG) Research Awards

Deadline 13 December 2019      Awards announced 15 March 2020

The American Genetic Association grants EECG Research Awards to graduate and post-doctoral researchers who are at a critical point in their research, where additional funds would allow them to conclude their research project and prepare it for publication.

These awards are open to any graduate student or postdoctoral fellow who is a member of the American Genetic Association at the time of application – visit http://www.theaga.org/ for membership details. 

NOTE:  You must have a 2020 AGA Membership Number before submitting your application.
Student and Postdoc Memberships can be purchased on the AGA website from November 15, 2019.

The program is not intended to fund an entire research project, to initiate new research projects, or to provide salary support.  Priority for funding will be given to proposals that address genome-scale questions, or ecological, evolutionary, and conservation genetics questions that are best addressed using genomic approaches in a hypothesis-testing framework.  While we will accept applications to work on any organism or group of organisms, we are most interested in projects that will generate results and conclusions that are broadly applicable, with the potential to move the field forward.  Awards will range from $5,000 to a maximum of $10,000.  Five to ten awards will be granted in 2020.

To Apply: Download the application form and guidelines: EECG application form 2020.

AGA Member Benefits

Watch for an announcement about changes to AGA membership

We are moving to direct member management  through the AGA website, instead of by Journal of Heredity’s publisher, Oxford University Press.  Going forward, we hope to be able to offer a much more interactive platform and faster, more personal communication with our members.

Information on how to become a member for 2020 will be available in early November.
