The Society for Ecological Restoration Midwest-Great Lakes Chapter (SER MWGL) has served Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa since 2008. Our mission is to promote the science and practice of ecological restoration to assist with the recovery and management of degraded ecosystems throughout the Midwestern and Great Lakes region of the United State

The Student Grant Program offers 2 awards:

The Chapter will award two grants (one Research, one Implementation) of up to $4,000 each.

  • Research Grant – supports student involvement in research in ecological restoration. This grant will be awarded to an eligible student for salary/pay, research supplies, field-related travel, equipment, and other expenses.
  • Implementation Grant – supports student involvement in the implementation or management of an ecological restoration project. This grant will be awarded to an eligible student, student group, or student-oriented group for salary/pay, supplies, field-related travel, equipment, outreach materials, and other items to support implementation of restoration practices.
  • Grant funds cannot be used for travel to the SER MWGL annual meeting. The award winners will be announced at the chapter annual meeting and on the chapter blog, and the recipients will be expected to present an oral or poster presentation on their work at the 2025 Annual Chapter Meeting. Award winners will receive waived annual meeting registration (limit 1 per award) for the 2025 Annual Chapter Meeting.
