Minority Undergraduate Participation Program (UMEB Program)

The Botanical Society of America (BSA) is pleased to announce the third year of a program entitled "Increasing diversity at the annual Botanical Society of America meeting."

This program is supported by the National Science Foundation (Undergraduate Mentoring in Environmental Biology (UMEB) Program) and will provide financial and professional assistance for 10 minority (African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Native Americans/Alaskan Natives and persons with disabilities) undergraduate research students to attend the Botany 2005 conference.

Through a supportive mentoring network and orientation activities, the students will be integrated into professional and social activities of the Botany 2005 conference.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor for one or more of the undergraduate students participating in the UMEB program, please indicate your interest on your Botany 2005 registration form. Faculty, researchers, post docs, graduate students, and administrators are all needed and encouraged to serve as mentors.
