General Information

Awards are intended to assist thesis-related field research in tropical biology and similar fields.

The Hovore-Horn Entomology funds are intended for Latin American entomology students, for small amounts ranging from $500 to $1,500.

Hovore-Horn Fellowship 

The Hovore-Horn research fellowships in entomology are available exclusively to Latin American students. Funded through an endowment established in 2005 by biologist Frank T. Hovore in honor of his parents, Alice and Andre Horn, this fellowship also honors Frank himself, who succumbed to a heart attack September 2006 while doing what he loved, collecting beetles in Ecuador. These fellowships are open to all Latin American graduate and advanced undergraduate students interested in Neotropical entomology. Projects should involve a strong field component and should emphasize the exploration, discovery and description of biological diversity, using insects and other terrestrial arthropods as study organisms. This may include field surveys, faunal inventories and ecological studies, and researchers may work in their own countries or another Latin American country. Interested applicants should submit proposals in Spanish to the OTS Costa Rican office by the regular deadline. Awards will usually range from $500 to $1,000 and may not exceed $1,500.

  • The Hovore-Horn Entomology awards may be used in any Latin American country.
