Our postdoctoral representative, Tanya Cheeke, asked that we help advertise the following message in order to help raise money for scholarships and travel awards:
Dear friends and colleagues,
As you know, we are in the midst of organizing the Eighth International Conference on Mycorrhiza, and we are delighted that so many of you are planning to attend. In organizing the conference, we have been surprised by the number of requests we have had from our colleagues in countries and at institutions with fewer resources than those of us here in the United States. We would like to ask your help to create scholarship and travel awards for as many of our colleagues as possible who need assistance to attend ICOM8.
The first way to help us do this is easy. If you register by mail (registration form attached) and make your payment to the NAU Foundation, the conference gets to keep the ~ 10% overhead the university would otherwise get. Instead, we will use that money for scholarships.
If you want to do your bit (a little bit more is always welcome), you will see that you also have the opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation to support travel awards and scholarships using the same form.
Thank you for your consideration, and we are looking forward to not only an engaging scientific program, but also seeing all of our friends and colleagues from across the world.
