The International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) announces the availability of its IPNI Scholar Award program for 2014.
"We are proud to be able to continue to offer these awards as they clearly have many positive benefits," said IPNI President Dr. Terry Roberts. "For students in the middle of, or just beginning, their research programs the Scholar Award provides a well deserved nod of encouragement. These awards are made possible by our member companies and are evidence of their respect for science."
The IPNI Scholar Award requires students who are candidates for either a M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree in agronomy, soil science, or a related field to submit an application and supporting information by April 30, 2014. Individual graduate students in any country where an IPNI program exists are eligible. Only a limited number of recipients are selected for the award, worth US$2,000 each.
The application process is available on-line only. Recipients will be announced in September 2014.
