Overview:

The California Lichen Society offers small grants to support research pertaining to the lichens of California. No geographical constraints are placed on grantees or their associated institutions, but grantees must be members in good standing of the California Lichen Society. The Grants Committee administers the grants program, with grants awarded to an individual only once during the duration of a project. 

CALS typically offers two grants of $750.00 and $1000.00 each year. Usually, two grants are awarded to separate individuals, however during some years both grants were awarded to one person. All grants are partially dependent on member contributions. therefore the amounts of these awards may vary from year to year.
