PBR funds individuals with grants up to $1000 in our competitive annual Small Grants Program. We support the study of any species in U.S. prairies and savannas. Over ten years PBR has funded 117 grants totaling $111,436 to researchers in 26 states. More than half of these grants supported graduate students. What makes this activity so urgent is that these habitats and the species that live there are vanishing. We are gathering information that may slow this terrible erosion of our natural heritage, while fostering the development of these researchers, thereby sustaining our cultural heritage. We can be only as successful in this effort as we are in raising the money that we give away.
