Proposals Now Being Accepted
Grant Program Designed to Promote Equitable and Inclusive Coast Redwood and Giant Sequoia Forest Research Opportunities
San Francisco, Calif. (October 1, 2020) — Save the Redwoods League today announced Redwoods Research Starter Grants of up to $5,000 for undergraduate and graduate students of color interested in research in coast redwood and giant sequoia forests. The goal of the starter grants is to provide introductory opportunities for members of underrepresented communities to explore ideas in the redwood research space or potentially enhance the work of those who are already working in this space. Proposals are due December 1, 2020.
The funding can be used to support a wide variety of activities, including travel for project development, wages to support a literature review or lab work, and pilot studies that can support the development of future research projects. It can be used to fund a stand-alone study or as supplemental funding to expand the scope of an existing project. Topic areas can include any focus area in the environmental/ecological sciences or the social sciences, as long as the proposal has some connection to coast redwood or giant sequoia forests.
Proposal evaluation will focus primarily on the project’s potential to enhance the applicant’s professional development in redwood research and conservation, with secondary emphasis on the potential for the project to either generate novel results or to support novel research questions in the future.
