New Grant Program Will Offer Long-Term Support to Sustain Ukrainian Science

The U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the Polish Academy of Sciences (Polska Akademia Nauk) have just launched a new long-term grant program to support Ukrainian scientists amidst the ongoing war. Grants under the new program allow teams of Ukrainian scientists, engineers, and researchers to continue their work at Polish academic or research institutes under the supervision of an experienced principal investigator. Applications will be accepted until Jan. 16, 2023.

Conflicts around the world can displace plant pathologists, disrupting vital research, and creating humanitarian hardship. 
The International Society for Plant Pathology has established a Resilience Bursary to provide emergency/refugee support for plant pathologists in need.  
The current focus is displaced plant pathologists from Ukraine, and ISPP is liaising with the Polish Phytopathological Society,  as well as Ukrainian colleagues, and other societies, to help them. 
Please consider donating to help broaden and extend support. A link to the ISPP Resilience Bursary Fund is below. Funds can also be sent by check or bank wire by first contacting us at resilience@isppweb.org. Donations are tax deductible in the USA. 
Please share this with others who may wish to contribute directly and consider organising a local fund-raiser on or before May 12th, which the United Nations has declared the International Day of Plant Health (IDPH).
Thank you!
Sincerely,
 
Jan E. Leach 
ISPP President
