The American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) is pleased to solicit applications for an AHS Student Research Grant from graduate or undergraduate students or faculty/staff using daylilies (plant genus Hemerocallis) as experimental organisms in original research project. 

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


  • All aspects of scientific research on Hemerocallis will be considered.
  • Fundamental areas of investigation are encouraged; examples are:
    • Banded chromosome preparations
    • Gene mapping
    • Fine structural studies of vegetative or reproductive parts
    • Microscopic analysis of the ontogeny of flower scapes in the crown
    • Effect of various hormones on plant growth and formation of proliferations on scapes
  • Likewise, practical areas of study are encouraged, such as:
    • Hardiness of various cultivars in different climatic zones
    • Use of microtubule degradants (e.g., trifluralin, oryzalin, amiprophosmethyl) to produce polyploids
    • Seed dormancy factors
    • Pests and diseases (e.g., crown rot, spring sickness, bulb mites, gall midge, daylily rust).


  • Student research will be given priority but all proposals will be given serious consideration.


  • The American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) does not cover indirect costs for research grant proposals.
  •  It is our intention that all money granted should go directly to the specific research project funded.
