  • Networking and mentoring events

Travel Grants

As the leading genomics conference organizer, AGBT is proud to offer up to 10 travel grants covering all reasonable travel (international or domestic), hotel and conference expenses (i.e., a “full ride”) to enable promising graduate students, post-docs, and early-career scientists to attend AGBT Agriculture. Applications open on November 8th, 2022, and are due on December 16th, 2022. 

What the Experts Are Saying

One of humanity’s greatest challenges is to sustainably produce more food on existing agricultural lands. AGBT Ag…fosters the needed dialogue and exchange of ideas to bring about the fourth agricultural revolution.

Our work is aimed at developing sustainable agriculture around feeding the population. That’s why having a conference like AGBT Ag, bringing experts across various fields, is really exciting.

Charlie Johnson, 2022 Organizing Committee Member and Executive Director Genomics & Bioinformatics, Texas A&M AgriLife

AGBT Ag is a big opportunity for communities to start talking across the disciplines a little bit more so that we can identify opportunities and spaces where we can scale existing technologies.

AGBT Ag is looking at bringing the best members of the scientific community, the best science; it’s bringing industry—and ensuring that we have real partnerships to make sure we have end-to-end interventions.

As a lecturer, scientist, and breeder, [AGBT Ag] could not have been better…I have enough to update my lectures and research approaches to benefit my students and supervisees.
