  • The electronic application form must be completed by a nominating faculty mentor.
    Apply here
  • Travel grants of $250 will be issued to each student and will require confirmation of student's attendance/presentation at the meeting.
Selection Criteria: Travel award recipients will be chosen based on the scholarly merit of their abstract, which should include:
  • A sentence that clearly states the study’s OBJECTIVE (unless included in the title);
  • A brief statement of METHODS (if pertinent);
  • A summary of the RESULTS;
  • A statement of CONCLUSIONS (it is not acceptable to state "the results will be discussed");
  • A statement of SIGNIFICANCE.
Deadline: Applications must be received by 5:00 pm ET October 15, 2019, for meetings held between October 15, 2019, and February 15, 2020, or by 5:00 pm ET January 13, 2020, for meetings held between February 13 and May 15, 2020.**  Applicants will be notified four to six weeks following the application deadline.
Questions: Please direct questions to Dr. Jacqueline Morris for the October deadline or Dr. Dan Westholm for the January deadline.
* Tri-Beta, Sigma Xi, and NCUR are not considered to be discipline-specific meetings for this travel award. However, biological abstracts submitted to SACNAS, ABRCMS, AISES, or another meeting focused on underrepresented populations as approved by the STA committee will be considered for an award. Although the CUR Biology Division truly appreciates the value of such meetings to the educational experience of undergraduates, the division chooses to use its limited funds for this award to help undergraduates attend a discipline-specific meeting so that they may interact with primary researchers within that discipline.
**Due to the timing of the CUR fiscal year, the division is unable to award funds to attend meetings held between May 15 and September 30.

New Opportunity from Herb Society


The mission of the Herb Society of America is to promote the knowledge and use of herbs through educational programs, research, and sharing of experiences of its members with the larger community.

As part of this mission, HSA will award grants of up to $5,000 in support of research on the horticultural, scientific, and/or social use of herbs throughout history. Supported research must define "herb" as something historically useful for flavoring, medicinal, ornamental, economic, industrial, or cosmetic purposes. The grant is intended to support small, self-contained research projects over a short period of time. Allowable costs include compensation for investigators, professional and technical assistance, research supplies and materials, and costs for computer time.

See the Herb Society website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Herpetology and Associated Resources

Gopher tortoise council is a very undergrad-friendly group, which I will likely be the chair of next year. The meeting is regional, and always somewhere in the southeast. This year, our annual meeting is going to be at Archbold Biological Station in Venus FL. Next year, it will likely be here in St Pete. Student registration is less than $100 for the meeting, and there is some student support for both travel and research. In fact, I chair the committee that disburses student research and travel funds. While I would clearly have to recuse myself from the proposal judging, I hope to have a student submit a research proposal grant. They are about $1000 each.

I anticipate that most of my students will attend both this coming meeting in Oct, and next year's meeting. Hopefully, we will have several of them give research presentations. 

The society for integrative and comparative biology (SICB, is an international society that generally meets in the US. Conveniently, the next meeting is in Tampa, early Jan 2019. I plan to attend this meeting, and would hope that some of my students do as well. While this is a big society, it is also very student friendly; student registration costs are relatively low, and the society will provide partial housing support (I think students pay less than $100) for the whole meeting if they volunteer during the conference. I would also hope that one or two of my students would present at this meeting. 

The third organization, American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, meets in mid July ( I don't think any of us will be attending the meeting this year, but I will attend it next year. It will be in Snowbird Utah. This is probably the best meeting for students to network with future grad labs, as almost everyone in our field attends this meeting. However, the registration fees are pretty high even for students ($200-400), plus associated hotel and travel costs. So, this is by far the most expensive meeting I attend, but it could be argued that it is also the most important meeting for my students to attend. Given the time line, there is ample time for us to plan accordingly for a good attendance next year. 


Other Spaces to Examine

Great resource for summer funding and for portable scholarships.


Ecos Grant-

Funding from Eckerd.

Due on April 15—Must join Society (25.00)

Florida Sea Grant administers a number of scholarship and fellowship opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students at Florida universities. These are offered on an annual basis. Application deadlines are indicated below. Students are encouraged to contact Karl Havens, the Director of Florida Sea Grant, for additional information about these opportunities.

Florida Sea Grant is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity for students at Florida colleges and universities, with the first ten awards to be made in 2018. The intent of this scholarship is to provide undergraduate and graduate students with financial support up to $1,000 each to attend a professional conference where they present their research results in either an oral (preferred) or poster session. This also provides an opportunity for the selected students to interact with peers and colleagues in their field in a manner that will help advance their professional careers and build collaborations.

List of NSF REU’s

My libguide.

The American Society for Environmental History encourages scholarship on the interactions between humans and the natural world (or among humans and non-humans) through time. Membership of the Society is markedly interdisciplinary and international, and the work of ASEH members ranges across the ages, from crucial concerns of the present to the farthest reaches of human time.

The Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) serves the faculty, students and staff of the 1000+ interdisciplinary environmental programs in North America and around the world. We seek to strengthen teaching, research and service in environmental studies and sciences, and to improve communication across boundaries that too often divide the traditional academic disciplines. The Association facilitates the professional development of Association members not just as individuals but also to advance Environmental Studies and Sciences as a whole.

In 2018, AESS will recognize members’ achievements by making awards in three categories: the Freudenburg Lifetime Achievement Award, the Early Career Award, and Best Student Paper Award.  AESS awards recognize excellence in achievement, engagement, and mentorship in the social and/or physical environmental sciences, with a special emphasis on building community and fostering diversity in related professions and practice.  While the awards remain selective, beginning in 2019, there may be more than one recipient in each award category, at the discretion of the AESS Board of Directors. Also planned for 2019, is the AESS ‘Circle of Fellows’ that will provide community and mentorship and will be honored at each yearly AESS meeting.

Amphibian Ark’s $5,000 competitive seed grant is designed to fund small start-up projects that are in need of seed money in order to build successful long-term programs that attract larger funding. Full details of the Seed Grant program are available here.

Each year, proposals will be accepted for the SSAR Roger Conant Grants-in-Herpetology Program starting on 15 September. Proposal are due on 15 December. This program is intended to provide financial support for deserving individuals (with a primary emphasis on student researchers) or organizations involved in herpetological research, education, or conservation.

Funding for Prairie Research Offered by Prairie Biotic Research, Inc.

Prairie Biotic Research (PBR) is an all-volunteer, Wisconsin nonprofit established in 2000 to foster basic biotic research in prairies and savannas. One way we do this is through a competitive Small Grants Program that funds grants up to $1000 to individuals for the study of any grassland taxon anywhere in the USA. They support both natural history and experimental science. They are especially eager to support independent researchers (those lacking institutional support), but anyone having a U.S. Social Security number may apply. Since 2002, they’ve awarded 211 grants worth $202,881 to people in 34 states to study insects, plants, mammals, reptiles, slime molds, mycorrhizal fungi, spiders, snails, amphibians, birds, fish, invasive species, effects of management, and the human dimensions of conservation. Many of these grants supported graduate student research. In 2016, we expect to fund at least 15 grants of up to $1000 each with the donations we have received, including some restricted by donors to support research in IA, IL, MI, MN, ND, SD, or WI.

To apply for a grant: Visit PBR’s newly redesigned website to learn more, to find their proposal form, instructions, and a sample researcher agreement form that winners of this competition must sign. Check out the history and overview files in the Small Grants section of the website to see what sorts of proposals have won funding in the past. Several winning proposals from past years are available as models on their website. Review the reports submitted by researchers of past years. Those who won funding in 2015 are ineligible for this funding in 2016, but those who won funding earlier than 2016 are welcome to submit proposals to further that same work or to support a new project. In past years, PBR required submission of hard copy proposals, but beginning this year, they want you to submit your proposal electronically, as a pdf file attached to an email.
