In memory and recognition of Barbra H. Mullin, the WAPMS awards travel funds to undergraduate and graduate students who commit to presenting research papers or posters at the annual society conference. The society covers the cost of lodging at the conference venue, and will also reimburse costs for travel to and from the conference based on the availability of funds. Students from a wide variety of disciplines are encouraged to apply for these stipends and become involved in the society. Research projects which include aquatic plant identification, restoration, biology, socio-economic impacts, detection, mapping and control are all appropriate. For questions, contact Dr. Ryan Thum, Montanta State University, at email@example.com.
Additionally, the Western Society of Weed Science is pleased to offer travel support through its Rita Beard Endowment Foundation to students or early career professionals that are studying/working in the area of invasive species management on natural lands/waters of the United States.
