Your Help Needed! Student Travel Campaign

ASPT has a big, but happy, financial problem.  We received the largest number of applications ever from students seeking travel grants to attend Botany 2019 and we want to raise additional funds to cover those who will not be able to otherwise receive funds without your help. Society support can mean the world to a student and foster long-term membership; consider making an additional donation to ASPT before 30 April 2019 to help out.

ASPT Auction Returns in 2019; Society Seeking Donations

The ASPT auction will return at the annual meeting in Tucson! A silent auction will run during the ASPT mixer/banquet, with the live auction held following the banquet. The auction directly supports students through reduced prices for the banquet and to fund student participation in field trips.

The key to the auction’s success is your generosity and donated items so ASPT is calling on you to help.
