Overview:

Hovore-Horn Fellowship — These 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. 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. Field surveys, faunal inventories, 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. 

 

Successful applicants must complete the proposed research within the original time frame of the project approved for funding.
