Conference: Utilization of Spore Trap and Molecular Based Pathogen Detection to Assist in Pathogen Detection, Disease Monitoring and Disease Management

Grants and Contracts Details


Global Experience Award-travel award As agriculture worldwide is affected by globalization, it becomes increasingly important to foster and sustain plant pathological research and extension on a global scale. It is therefore important that today’s plant pathologists find opportunities to establish collaborations and share intellectual resources. That is why the Office of International Programs launched the "Global Experience," a program aimed at helping APS plant pathologists work with scientists and extension personnel in developing countries in training and outreach efforts. Funds garnered by the OIP will be used to support graduate students, post-doctoral associates, faculty, and staff in conducting short courses, workshops, or training programs in collaboration with a host country cooperating institution. Development of outreach and extension materials, as well as a demonstration of diagnostic tools, will also be supported by this program. Up to $4,000 will be available to successful applicants to support travel and training material costs. Funds are to be used within 12 months of notification of being a recipient of the award. Depending on the level of interest and available funding, funded amounts may increase in the future.
