A primary goal of the Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS) is to support student education and research. In 2012, the Student Research Grants competition will be providing partial support for the best wetland-related research conducted by qualified students worldwide. Because the total amount of funding requested always exceeds available funds, proposals are evaluated on a competitive basis. Grants are intended to aid student research and not be the sole source of research support. There is no predetermined funding limit, but the maximum award will not exceed $1,000 USD.
A student is eligible to apply for a Student Research Grant if they are conducting undergraduate or graduate-level research in wetland science at an accredited college or university worldwide. Please note that the student applicant must be a member of SWS to be eligible.
Please click here to obtain the application and to submit your completed form and proposal document. Providers of letters of reference will also submit their documents through the website.
The application deadline is World Wetlands Day – February 2, 2012.
Please contact Dianna Hogan, Chair of the Student Grants Subcommittee with questions.
