About this funder:
These grants honor the memory of Karl Hirsch, a WIPS member who reached the acme of amateur paleontology. His contributions to the study of fossil eggs were recognized and honored by several paleontological organizations, including WIPS, The Paleontological Society, and the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology.
Grants are given to support novel research in paleontology or a closely related field. Funds for successful past projects have been used to support museum travel and supplies for paleontological research, fieldwork to collect significant specimens, and external analyses (e.g. CT scanning, geochemical analyses).

- Applicants are no longer required to be active WIPS members, though preference will be given to members.
- It is strongly encouraged that applicants join WIPS prior to applying for a grant.
- Proposals from first-time applicants will also be given priority over previous awardees in an effort to diversify the types of work WIPS supports.
- Previous grant or scholarship recipients who have not fulfilled the reporting requirements will not be considered.
