Acknowledgement of Support

If papers that you publish or presentations that you give at conferences feature research that you conducted, in part or in full, while supported by the P3 NSF Research Traineeship program, it is important to give proper credit to the National Science Foundation. Even if the NSF award did not provide direct financial support for execution of your research (e.g. costs of field work or lab analyses), the stipend provided support for your time while completing your work and therefore should be acknowledged.

P3 Program Trainee Travel Application

Each award year (September 2017 – September 2020), the NSF NRT Predictive Plant Phenomics (P3) Program sets aside funding, a portion of the NSF NRT award for trainee support costs, specifically established for trainee travel. This is for travel to scientific conferences, meetings, or symposia as related to the trainees’ degree and research focus, such as the annual meeting of the Annual Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) or the ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB).

P3 Program Trainee Research Materials and Supplies Application

Each award year (September 2017 – September 2020), the NSF NRT Predictive Plant Phenomics (P3) Program sets aside funding, a portion of the NSF NRT award for trainee support costs, specifically established for trainee laboratory experiment materials and supplies utilized for predictive plant phenomics related research. This funding is available to all P3 PhD students who are enrolled in the Predictive Plant Phenomics degree specialization.
