Overview:

The EAS Foundation for Honey Bee Research is a competitive grant program developed from donations received from beekeepers and others interested in funding research on topical problems in honey bees.

Proposals are solicited annually with award amounts to be determined by spring before the EAS annual meeting. Requests for “seed money” to provide investigators the opportunity to collect preliminary data or as “add on” funds to combine with other funding sources to continue present research will also be considered. We welcome separate, discrete project proposals and requests that identify pieces of ongoing research programs where additional funds can accomplish an objective of a larger program. 

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

Eligibility:

  • Proposals are welcome from any individuals conducting research on honey bees.
  • Grant funds may be used for supplies, equipment, salaries, travel, or other appropriate uses by the recipient. 

Preferences:

  • Requests for support for student projects (undergraduate summer employees/graduate student) or for equipment/supplies for distinct research projects are given highest priority.

Ineligibility:

  • As a nonprofit organization, the EAS Foundation does not pay overhead on funded research grants.
