The Professor D.A. Webb Scholarship
This scholarship was established in 1995 in memory of Professor D.A. Webb, Professor of Systematic Botany in T.C.D. Funds were provided through his estate, subsequent donations given by friends and colleagues in his memory and royalties from the sale of various editions of ‘Webb’s An Irish Flora’.
The fund is designed to allow students to understand fully, Irish plant variation, distribution and occurrence, in its wider European context. In part the fund is used to support field-work and, in part, to support needy postgraduate students undertaking relevant study. Value, €6,348 in 2001.
50% of the net interest received from the fund can be made available to support travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses for students undertaking field study of the Irish Flora in its European context. Under exceptional circumstances, awards may be made to support attendance at conferences or other symposia.
Written applications of no more than two pages in length, are to be made to the Curator of the Herbarium before 1st March during the year in which funding is sought.
