Overview:

The South Atlantic Chapter (SAC) of the Society of Wetland Scientists has established two (2) $750 general research grants to be awarded annually to undergraduate or graduate students (either Masters or Doctoral students) engaged in research that has direct applicability to the advancement of wetland science. Applications will be judged on the scientific merit and innovative aspects of their research proposals. Grants are intended to aid but not to provide sole support of, student research. 

Applications will be considered for funding periods of no more than one year. However a previous awardee may reapply for additional support, with a restriction that no individual will receive more than three years of support. 

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

  • A separate budget justification must be provided for the SAC application (students cannot ask to fund the same items from both the SWS and SAC competitions; send a SAC-specific "Student Grant Application Form")
