About this funder:
The Botanical Society of America (BSA) and the American Society of Plant Taxonomists (ASPT) are pleased to invite applications for the annual Botanical Advocacy Leadership Award. This award organized by the Environmental and Public Policy Committees of BSA and ASPT aims to support local efforts that contribute to shaping public policy on issues relevant to plant sciences.
The successful proposal will:
- Demonstrate a connection to improving public knowledge, connecting with policymakers, or taking hands-on action on issues relevant to plant science.
- Briefly explain the grantee’s qualifications and institutional affiliation.
Proposals that can show how the project can lay a foundation for longer-term transformation and/or support those who face systemic disadvantage will be viewed favorably.
Examples of previously awarded projects:
- Funding a capacity-building workshop for rural women to support conservation and sustainable management of endangered, rare, and/or culturally important plant species.
- Purchase of a digital video camera to present live images of plants during a summer lecture series at an underfunded, botanically-focused branch of a regional museum.
The recipient of this grant will receive $1000 to be used in the proposed project and will be recognized at the annual Botany meeting during the awards ceremony.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. All active members of BSA and ASPT are eligible to apply.
