[EmergingEthnoNetwork] Travel Award to attend the 2012 Society for Economic Botany

The Open Science Network (OSN) is proud to announce that we will be hosting a competition among emerging ethnobiologists to obtain a travel award to attend the OSN sponsored Teaching Tuesday (June 5) during the Society for Economic Botany proceedings. An emerging ethnobiologist includes individuals within five years of graduation or graduate students who are interested in pursuing a teaching career.

A morning symposium and afternoon of workshops explore teaching strategies designed to prepare ethnobiologists with the skills needed to address 21st century challenges through the field of ethnobiology. Networking opportunities with educators and students abound in this full day of professional development led by leading instructors in the field.

The Open Science Network grant, funded by the National Science Foundation, encourages students, faculty and practicing ethnobiologists to participate in this full day of educational activities in conjunction with the Society for Economic Botany meetings scheduled for June 4-7 in Frostburg, MD.

All interested EMERGING Ethnobiologists need to complete an application and survey that can be found at the following link
