Only Two Weeks Remain to Turn In Proposals for Student Restoration Grants
Hey, Ecological restoration students, Marsh 15, 2019 is the deadline to submit your proposals for grant awards for up to $2000 each for either a student restoration research project or a student restoration implementation project.
Each year SER MWGL offers a Student Restoration Implementation Grant and Student Restoration Research Grant. In the past the awards have been for up to $1000 each; this year the awards are for up to $2000 each. Grants are competitive and available to student Chapter members at any institution of higher education occurring within the region of SER MWGL Chapter. Award recipients will be announced on the chapter website and the recipient will be expected to present an oral or poster presentation about their funded project at the Annual Chapter Meeting one year later.
Check out the Student Grant Program web page for details on both grant programs.
Student Restoration Implementation Grant: To encourage and support student involvement in the practice of ecological restoration within the regional boundaries of SER MWGL Chapter. The Chapter will award one grant of up to $2,000 to an eligible student, student group, or student-oriented group to be used for supplies, equipment, and other items that will support implementation of restoration practices. Grant funds cannot be used for travel to the SER MWGL annual meeting. The award winners will be announced on the chapter blog Restoration News Midwest.
Examples of types of project implementation proposals that the Chapter would consider supporting include, but are not limited to, the following: 1) implementation of restoration projects by student groups; 2) support student group participation in volunteer work days at restoration site or sites; and 3) support student group education or outreach event developed to educate the public about a restoration project that they have implemented or education/outreach about restoration project that others have implemented. See the SER MWGL 2019 Implementation Award RFP.
Student Restoration Research Grant: To encourage and support student involvement in research in ecological restoration within the regional boundaries of the SER MWGL Chapter. The Chapter will award one grant of up to $2,000 to an eligible student to be used for research supplies, travel (directly in support of the research), equipment and other needs.
