Overview:

The Heliconia Society International sponsors a small grants program supporting research projects on any aspects of the botany and horticulture of the Zingiberales conducted by graduate and post-doctoral students enrolled at recognized universities and research institutions. Annual grants of $1,000 are available, but only one award will be granted to any researcher at a time. A student or postdoc can receive a single grant in a three year period. After three years, they are welcome to submit another proposal to extend previously funded research or to support a separate project. Proposals may be submitted at any time and will be reviewed periodically by the Society's Grants Committee.

Applicants will be informed of the Committee's decision regarding their proposals 3-4 months after submission. In addition to the requested budget not to exceed $1,000 (US), awardees will receive one year's free membership to the HSI, and a summary of their research proposal will be published in the HSI Bulletin. Successful applicants must submit a final report within 12 months of receiving funding that describes the results of the project and includes a brief accounting of the funds spent. Awardees are also required to submit an article for publication in the HSI Bulletin upon conclusion of on their research.
