About this funder:



This program provides grants to support student research in the earth sciences. The emphasis will be on research topics that relate to the mission and priorities of the foundation. The mission of the Evolving Earth Foundation is to support education and research in the earth sciences. Grant applications that support this mission in any way will be considered, although preference will be given to grant requests that directly relate to focus areas of the foundation. These areas include:

    • Understanding of paleoenvironments and paleoclimates during different intervals in earth's history.
    • Understanding of taphonomic processes in terrestrial, marine and freshwater environments.
    • Evolution, systematics or taxonomy of fossil plant or animal groups.
    • Paleontological, paleobotanical or paleoecological studies of specific fossil localities. A multidisciplinary approach is strongly encouraged.
    • Relationships of organisms in paleocommunities with each other or with their physical environment.
    • Evolution of landforms and geologic features. This can be on a global, regional, or local scale.

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


    • Undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers at accredited U.S. colleges and universities or research institutions are eligible to apply for grants.
