CEPCEB Award Fund


CEPCEB Award Fund

The CEPCEB Award Fund was established in 2002 to provide critical scholarship support to promising young scientists. These awards annually recognize research excellence in plant cell biology, genomics and bioinformatics by pre-college students, undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers. The Award Fund also sponsors an annual special seminar and awards ceremony where an invited prominent scientist presents his or her work. If you would like to help CEPCEB in honoring the talent and dedication of these deserving young scientists, please see our list of awards below and consider a monetary contribution. All donations are tax deductible.
