  1. FUNDING FOR PRAIRIE RESEARCH offered by Prairie Biotic Research, Inc. We Are Prairie Biotic Research (PBR) is an all-volunteer, Wisconsin nonprofit established in 2000 to foster basic biotic research in prairies and savannas. One way we do this is through a competitive Small Grants Program that 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 having a U.S. Social Security number may apply. Since 2002, we've awarded 136 grants worth $130,196 to people in 30 states to study insects, plants, mammals, reptiles, slime molds, mycorrhizal fungi, spiders, snails, amphibians, birds, invasive species, effects of management, and the human dimensions of conservation. Many of these grants supported graduate student research. In 2013, we expect to 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 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. We must receive your proposal through the mail before January 6, 2013. 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. Our Supporters We are very grateful for gifts recently received from individuals, businesses, foundations and nonprofit organizations in support of our Small Grants Program: Michael Anderson, Neil Bernstein, Big Bluestem Audubon Society (Ames, IA), Andria Blattner, Stephen & Nancy Bloom, Kurt Christoffel, Rebecca Christoffel, Citizens Natural Resources Association of Wisconsin, Conservation and Research Foundation, Lloyd Crim, Robert & Nancy Dott, James E.

Become a Supporter Please make a donation to support PBR. Any amount is welcome. PBR is volunteer-run so our overhead is very low. You may specify that your entire tax-deductible donation be given to researchers through our Small Grants Program, or to expand our research endowment that produces income we give away annually through this program.

  2. Greetings from the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation: We are pleased to announce that the application period for the 2013 Switzer Environmental Fellowships is now open! Switzer Fellowships are given to top graduate students in New England and California who are committed to a career in environmental improvement, and who demonstrate the potential for leadership in their chosen field. The Fellowship provides a one-year $15,000 cash award, as well as access to other Switzer grant programs and career support, and membership in the Switzer Fellowship Network, a vibrant community of over 500 Switzer Fellows and environmental leaders. (We invite you to check out Switzer Network News to see live podcast interviews with some of our Fellows working on a diverse set of issues.) The Switzer Fellowship is not intended to be a research fellowship. We fund individuals doing a wide variety of environmental work (e.g., science, law, policy, engineering). Leadership potential is a more significant factor in our evaluation than the specifics of a particular graduate research project, although we are interested in novel and applied approaches to contemporary issues. Please see the Call for Applications which describes the Fellowship program and its requirements. Please pass this on to eligible candidates and colleagues, and post to your financial aid or graduate student office bulletin boards! This year's application deadline is January 10, 2013. If you have any questions about the Fellowship Program guidelines or the online application process, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Switzer Foundation staff. Thank you, and we look forward to receiving your students' applications! Lissa Widoff, Executive Director - lissa@switzernetwork.org Erin Lloyd, Program Officer - erin@switzernetwork.org Don Brackett, Administrative Officer - don@switzernetwork.org Office: (207) 338-5654 (office hours 8:30 am - 5:00 pm Eastern time, Mon-Thurs, other hours available by appointment) The Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation is a results-driven family foundation that invests in individuals and organizations that drive positive environmental change. Founded in 1986, the Foundation is a grant making organization that mobilizes leaders from diverse disciplines who focus on integrated solutions to environmental issues. Through the Switzer Environmental Fellowship Program and related grants, the Foundation supports a Network of over 500 Switzer Fellows who are leaders in the nonprofit, public policy, business, academic and government sectors working to solve today's environmental challenges.

Eligibility: Undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled at recognized academic institutions. Application Requirements: Applications must be received electronically, and must include four parts in the order given below: Biography (one page) of applicant including field experience, relevant courses completed, and other information the applicant deems relevant. Research proposal (two pages maximum, excluding citations), that describes the work to be accomplished, its ecological or biophysical significance, relevance to contemporary ecology or earth science, and a tentative timeline. All information, excluding literature citations, must adhere to the two-page limit. Budget (one-page). Letter of support (one) from the faculty advisor stating that the applicant is capable of conducting the proposed research.
