About this funder:



The Awards Committee of the Ecological Society of America solicits and encourages nominations from members of the ESA for Forrest Shreve Student Research Award. ESA especially encourages nominations of candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.

An award given annually of $1000-2000 is available to support research in the hot deserts of North America:

  • Sonora,
  • Mohave,
  • Chihuahua, and
  • Vizcaino.

Projects should be clearly ecological and should increase our understanding of the patterns and processes of deserts and/or desert organisms. Proposals will be ranked based on the importance of the project to understanding desert ecology, feasibility, experimental design and innovation.

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


  • Graduate and undergraduate students are eligible, as long as they are currently enrolled in a degree program and are members of the ESA.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member.
