28th Annual North American Dendroecological Fieldweek (NADEF)

The #2018NADEF will be held at the A.L. Mickelson Field Station near Cody, Wyoming. The fieldweek will run from July 22 through July 31. Registration fees are $1300 USD for students and $1500 USD for professionals. Students should send a photocopy of their student ID with their registration. Your registration fee includes round-trip transportation between Yellowstone Regional Airport in Cody, WY and the field station, field excursions, room and board for the entire week. Registration fees are due by May 30, 2018

Undergrad and Graduate Fellowships

Through funding from the National Science Foundation we are pleased to announce we can offer five Undergraduate Diversity Fellowships for people in under-represented groups. The fellowship covers the cost of registration for the fieldweek. We are also able to offer five NSF Graduate Research Fellowships that pay up to $3,000 to take the research projects done at NADEF further. Graduate students that are attending the fieldweek can apply for these fellowships that award $1,000 for archiving the digital data from the group, $1,000 to present the group project at a national or international conference, and a final $1,000 if the graduate student puts in the work to advance the project to where it is submitted for peer-reviewed publication. These NSF Graduate Research Fellowship recipients are chosen during the fieldweek based on ability to complete the project, enthusiasm and effort during the fieldweek, and clearance from the advisor to put the further work necessary to push the project towards publication.
