The O.N. Allen Soil and Environmental Microbiology Small Grants Program is a small-grant opportunity for UW-Madison graduate students and postdocs studying soil and environmental microbiology, supported by the O.N. Allen professorship in Soil Science, the WID Multi-Omics Hub, the Department of Plant Pathology, and the Department of Bacteriology. Submitted proposals were reviewed and selected by an NSF-style panel of students and postdocs with broad scientific backgrounds.
These awards are intended to develop and support grant-writing, reviewing, and independent research skills in a broad range of early-career scientists and to connect researchers across colleges, bringing together diverse areas of environmental microbiology, including soil, water, animal, and plant microbiome research. The recipients of the small grants will participate in a campus-wide environmental microbiology symposium, where they and other researchers across campus will present their research in short talks and a poster session.
