About this funder:



The Society of Wetland Scientists aims to develop and encourage wetland science as a distinct discipline by providing support in student education, curriculum development and research. To support this goal, SWS offers partial funding of wetland-related research conducted by undergraduate and graduate students from an accredited college or university worldwide.

These grants are intended to aid student's costs of travel, room and board in the course of field investigation and to help cover costs of expendable materials and supplies required in the execution of the proposed research.

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


  • All SWS student members conducting undergraduate or graduate level research in wetland science at an accredited college or university who have not previously been awarded an SWS Research Grant are eligible to apply. 
  • All student research proposals may also be eligible for one of the other Student Research Grants associated with SWS chapters or sections.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member.


  • SWS Student Research Grants are not intended to be used as the sole source of support nor should the grant be used to provide funding for incidental research tasks of a larger project.
  • Funds requested for equipment purchases, contracted routine chemical analyses, field assistant(s), vehicle rental, etc. will not be provided except under extraordinary circumstances.
