Funding For Prairie Research offered by Prairie Biotic Research, Inc.

Prairie Biotic Research (PBR) is an all-volunteer nonprofit that fosters basic biotic research in prairies and savannas.  Through our competitive Small Grants Program, PBR funds grants up to $1000 to individuals for the study of any grassland taxon anywhere in the USA.  We support both natural history and experimental science.  We are especially eager to support independent researchers (those lacking institutional support), but anyone may apply.  Since 2002, we’ve awarded 155 grants worth $148,946 to people in 32 states.  Many of these grants supported graduate student research.

In 2013, we'll fund at least 10 grants of up to $1000 each with the donations we have received, including some restricted by donors to support research in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.  To apply for a grant, visit our website (prairiebioticresearch.org) to learn more, to download our 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.  Review the reports submitted by researchers of past years.

Those who won funding in 2012 are ineligible for this funding in 2013, but those who won funding longer ago are welcome to submit proposals to further that same work or to support a new project.  You must have a U.S. Social Security number to apply and the research for which you seek support must be done in the USA.  We must receive your proposal through the mail before December 31, 2013.

Questions should be directed to the website: prairiebioticresearch.org

Thank you for your consideration of this grant.
