The American Bryological and Lichenological Society (ABLS) is pleased to announce this year’s program to provide support for student field research in lichenology. This award is made possible by generous donations provided by Larry Giles of Duke University to ABLS in honor of Bill Culberson & Mason Hale, both of whom were committed to field-based research on the biology of lichens.

We anticipate 1 to 2 awards per year of up to $750 each in support of fieldwork by lichenology students. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Funds are intended primarily to support travel to field sites but requests to cover other expenses essential to fieldwork will be considered.
  • Proposed fieldwork may focus on any area of lichenological research including systematics, evolution, genetics, physiology, or ecology.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Applicant must be a member of ABLS. In the case of undergraduates who are not members of ABLS, their faculty advisor must be a member.


  • Awards are not provided for support of travel to meetings, symposia, or to visit herbaria, museums, or other institutions. 
  • Funds cannot be used for laboratory expenses.
