Peter Bannister Student Field Grant

Call For Applications

Applications are invited for a grant from the Peter Bannister Student Field Grant Fund to assist those enrolled for a PhD, MSc, BSc (Hons) or PGDip at the University of Otago and whose thesis deals with some aspect of botany.

The research project to be supported will be chosen on the basis of appropriateness to the objectives of the Society, namely to encourage the study and knowledge of botany. The grant will be administered through a supervisor's University of Otago account.

The grant is for fieldwork related expenses. It will not support equipment purchases or attending conferences. This is the last year the grant will be available.

Closing date for applications is 18 August 2018

A copy of the application form and rules may be downloaded from the Botanical Society of Otago website:
