    Exploration and Field Research Grant


    Melanie Colón

    The ECWG established the awards to encourage young men and women to add to the body of knowledge of the earth, its people and the universe through exploration and field research.

     

    Examples of disciplines appropriate for support are anthropology, archaeology, ecology, entomology, botany, linguistics, ornithology, geography, ichthyology, geology, oceanography, glaciology, and similar disciplines.

     

    Grants are available to graduate students who are enrolled in a college or university in Washington, DC, Virginia, West Virginia,or Maryland and who are under the supervision of a qualified scientist or educator.

     

    The activity may occur anywhere in the world. It should be emphasized that that those expeditions supported will be for scientific purposes, in accordance with the Explorers Club’s stated objective, “to broaden our knowledge of the universe”.

     

    The grants are intended to provide supplemental funds to support fieldwork or closely related endeavors, and generally range from one to several thousand dollars.

     

    While the awards are small, former grantees have successfully used their awards to collect preliminary data leading to other awards or to augment support for items not covered elsewhere.

     

    Allowable items include travel to specialized facilities or field research locations, purchase of supplies, rental of field or research facilities, and similar items. Funds may not be used for stipends, tuition, textbooks, journals, language training, allowances for dependents, travel to scientific meetings, publication costs, reproduction, or indirect costs.
