Recommended Posts

Grants of up to $6000, supported by the David Redden Conservation Science Fund, will be awarded on a competitive basis to fund scientific research conducted within Black Rock Forest. Proposed research should have a particular emphasis on applications to the conservation of populations, species, or ecosystems. Applications from graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and senior researchers are welcomed. Proposals from undergraduate and high school students will be accepted if submitted in collaboration with the faculty who will directly supervise their research. Award funds can be used to purchase project supplies and equipment, to pay for processing of samples at external laboratory facilities, as stipends for students or research assistants, and/or to cover transportation or other incidental costs.

Black Rock Forest is an environmental nonprofit organization founded in 1989 to advance scientific understanding of the natural world. In addition to a 3,914-acre forest, the organization runs a science field station with labs, classrooms and lodging for investigators and students in Cornwall, New York. The Forest features a wide variety of terrestrial and aquatic habitats.
Application deadline: received by 5 PM on Friday February 8, 2019
