The Conchologists of America, better known as COA, is a society for shell enthusiasts from all walks of life, at all levels of interest. It is a tax-exempt educational non-profit organization under the provisions of Article 501(c) 3 of the US Internal Revenue Service Code (Tax ID 112541695).
Grants of up to $2,500 each are given to qualified parties undertaking field or laboratory research on recent or fossil mollusks, and other molluscan related projects.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- The application must focus on a malacological topic; e.g., parasite studies should focus on the molluscan side of the interaction.
- All disciplines from autecology to zoogeography, including paleontological disciplines, are covered.
- The project of the application must be self-contained.
- With the funding requested it must be possible to answer the question posed.
- The proposal may only be a sub-component of the overall research.
- If some other funding has already been secured by the applicant (not applied for), this may be taken into account.
- Partial funding is an option and at the sole discretion of the Academic Grants Committee.
- Amounts smaller than $2,500 can be requested and those applications tend to fare better.
- Awards are not made to high school students and rarely are made to undergraduate college students.
- Institutional overhead is not permitted.
- Permanent equipment is not allowed in the application.
- An example of a non-compliant application would be field work and cost intensive analysis of those field-collected samples (e.g., DNA sequencing, mass spectroscopy, EM), where COA funds of $2,500 for analysis only are requested, but field work is not firmly covered.
