Overview:

Graduate Student Research Award

The New England Botanical Club offers awards of up to $3,000 to graduate students to support botanical research. The awards encourage and support botanical research on the New England flora (plants, algae, and fungi), including support for field, lab, and herbarium work, as well as travel to New England by those who would not otherwise be able to work in the region. The present budgeted amount for this award is $6000, so it is anticipated that two to three awards will be given each year, although the actual number and amount of awards will depend on the proposals received in a given year.

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

Eligibility:

  • The awards are made to the graduate student(s) submitting the best research proposal dealing with systematic botany, plant ecology, genetics, plant conservation biology, or related fields pertaining to the New England flora.

Preferences:

  • Publications based on the research funded through the award should acknowledge NEBC's support. Submission of manuscripts to the Club's journal, Rhodora, is strongly encouraged.
