Student Progress Report (SPR) Students are required to annually complete the SPR. The SPR will be filled out prior to the student's annual committee meeting. Once the student submits the online form, the Committee Chair will review, comment and submit the form. It is the Fields hope that this will promote productive feedback between students, their advisors, and the Field while satisfying Graduate School requirements for our Assessment Plan.
Structured Observation for Oral Exams The Field of Plant Breeding is required to report on how well students perform their oral exams. Please take this form with you to your A and B Exam and return to the GFA with your Exam Results Form. You can find the rubric for completing the form here.
PBG Travel Grant Guidelines and Application The Section of Plant Breeding and Genetics believes that attendance and presentation at scientific meetings is an important component of a graduate student’s professional development. As such PBG provides financial support to assist students in attending scientific meetings. The amount of funding available to support each request depends on the number and dollar value of the requests made in a given year.
Graduate School Travel Grant Applications are accepted up to 30 days after the START date of the conference.
