Special Events Awards 2018

The round is now closed.

Awards announced 30 Mar 2018

The American Genetic Association grants awards each year to its members for support of special events that advance its mission, particularly to enable students to attend the event.  Eligible events include specialized workshops and short courses, but any event relevant to promoting organismal genetic and genomic research will be considered.  Events that could lead to Journal of Heredity articles will receive special consideration.  Awards are between $1,000-$15,000.
