The Research Advisory Committee (RAC) of the National Speleological Society, Inc. (NSS) has established a program of small grants to support cave-related research by students and their educators. Many karst scientists and scholars who have made significant contributions started as young cavers and developed a passion for cave science. Today's young and curious cavers/scientists are the people who will be future leaders in the field of cave and karst studies.
The Secondary and Post-Secondary Educator Grant is established for the purpose of investing the future of karst science by supporting projects initiated by and/or overseen by educators of secondary students and post secondary undergraduates. Proposals submitted for consideration will be reviewed by the Research Advisory Committee with input from the Education Committee. The purpose of this grant is to make an investment in the future of cave and karst science by supporting outstanding research proposals submitted by educators of secondary and post-secondary undergraduate students. The program is funded by money approved in the yearly RAC operating budget
