Joint TSL / VeRoLog Cross-region Collaborative Grant

Please find below the announcement of Maciek Nowak, TSL President

Dear TSL Members,

it is my pleasure to announce two new TSL sponsored grants that have been created as part of our efforts to generate more collaboration across the four TSL regions (North America, Central and South America, Europe and Africa, and Asia, Australia and New Zealand).  The grants and application process are described in full detail below, with one grant aimed at doctoral students hoping to study abroad and the other more broadly focused at driving collaborative research.  Importantly, note that the Cross-region Collaborative Grant has an additional $2000 grant that is part of an agreement with VeRoLog and that is available to EURO members.
