    Great Hollow offers two grants each year in the amount of up to $2,500 each for biological research to be conducted at our preserve in New Fairfield, CT. All areas of field biology are welcome, but those with a clear conservation application are the most competitive. Great Hollow Nature Preserve may be the only study site or may be one of multiple study sites used for the study. Applicants can be students or professionals of any age and career stage, but they must be affiliated with an educational institution or other non-profit organization. The grants may be used for field assistant wages, field and lab equipment and supplies, or direct expenses. Proposals will be evaluated by their novelty, scientific merit and soundness of the methodology, and likelihood to contribute significant new information to the published literature on the subject.


    Applications are due December 1st and awardees are announced by February 1st of each year. To apply, please provide a brief cover letter, C.V., and a proposal of no more than 3 pages single spaced (not including references) that includes the project need, research question(s), detailed methods, detailed budget and any other sources of funding, predicted results, and expected contribution of the study to the relevant field. Email applications as a single PDF document to cseewagen@greathollow.org with “GRANT APPLICATION_[Last Name]” in the subject line.
