The purpose of the Michigan Botanical Foundation (MBF) is to provide support for Michigan botanical research, educational publications, and related activities that enhance the knowledge and preservation of Michigan’s flora.
To help achieve the mission of the Foundation, grants will be made to support endeavors, both research- and community-based, that are consistent with the mission of the Foundation. We are interested in funding the following types of projects:
Research projects which involve the study of Michigan plants including but not limited to: (a) state or federally listed (rare, threatened, or endangered) species; (b) competition between invasive and native species; and (c) floristic surveys;
Environmental projects which have one or more of the following features: (a) the project will raise public awareness of Michigan's flora; (b) the project involves preservation, reclamation, or restoration of native habitat; (c) the proposed uses of the project site and access to it will result in public education;
Educational efforts such as workshops, institutes, conferences, and exhibits which hold the promise of increasing public awareness and knowledge of Michigan's flora. Student scholarships to attend valuable botanical conferences and educational programs are also considered for funding.
These grants will be made on a case-by-case basis upon application to the Foundation when adequate funding exists. Applications for grants must be shown to have educational value with respect to Michigan's flora and may be funded in whole or in part.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
