Scholarships

The LSU PPCP GSA awards scholarships for lodging, registration, or other meeting expenses, to be applied towards attendance at a plant pathology, crop physiology, or related professional meeting. Two PPCP GSA Scholarships in the amount of $150 (amount subject to change), one for a Master’s student and one for a PhD student, are awarded for both spring (Jan. 1 – June 30) and fall (July 1 – Dec. 31) periods.

To be eligible for these awards, a student must be a full-time graduate student in the Department of Plant Pathology and Crop Physiology at Louisiana State University and must be in good standing, as deemed by the Department and the LSU Graduate School. A student is only eligible to receive one of these scholarships every other year during his/her study in the Department.

Students must fill out the scholarship application and turn it in to one of the GSA Faculty Advisors by the second Friday of June (for fall applications) or the last Friday of November (for spring applications).
