ASPB awards 15 summer undergraduate research fellowships
Date:5/31/2011

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) has named the recipients of its 2011 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) awards. The SURF program assists promising undergraduate students so they can conduct meaningful plant biology research early in their college careers. Mentoring is a key element of the program, and a solid mentoring plan is an important part of proposal; SURF students must work with a mentor who is an ASPB member.

In honoring the recipients, ASPB President Nicholas Carpita said, "As we start our second decade of ASPB's hugely successful SURF awards program, I congratulate not only the awardees but also the drive and dedication of its great mentors."

In addition to promoting undergraduate research in plant science, the fellowships support each SURF student's presentation of a poster at ASPB's annual meeting in the year following the research project. As such, the students listed below will conduct their research this summer and present their findings at Plant Biology 2012, which will be held July 20󈞄, 2012, in Austin, Texas.

Amy Clore, who cochairs the SURF program with Kenneth Helm, explained that, "by funding these students, all of whom have incredible potential, ASPB hopes to directly contribute to the next generation of plant biologists."

SURF proposals are reviewed in two separate categories, research universities and primarily undergraduate institutions. Of the 115 undergraduate applicants, fifteen undergraduates were selected as SURF recipients and five received honorable mentions.

Last year's SURF recipients will present posters at Plant Biology 2011, August 6󈝶, 2011, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Applications for next year's SURF competition will open in late 2011.

A list of the awardees, their mentors, and project titles follow.
