Jasper Joiner Graduate Student Travel Scholarship 

The purpose of this scholarship is to provide funding to help defray expenses for graduate students presenting a paper or poster at a national or international professional meeting or conference. The ENH department named this scholarship after the late Dr. Jasper Joiner, a distinguished teacher, and researcher in the Environmental Horticulture Department, who established the endowment to fund these scholarships.


Only graduate students enrolled in the Environmental Horticulture graduate program (HSE) are eligible to apply. Students must make a presentation (oral or poster) on their original research at a national or international meeting or conference and must have the support of their major advisor to attend. Students are eligible for one travel scholarship per fiscal year.
