Announced March 13, 2020
Successful conservation of biological diversity requires both basic and applied research to better inform current and future policy decisions. Because graduate students are a major engine of biodiversity research at UW, the Biodiversity Institute (BI) is providing grants to enhance or expand ongoing graduate student research in any field related to biodiversity.
The proposal must follow the format provided below (also available here in PDF Format).
Proposals will be reviewed by a committee composed of Biodiversity Institute personnel and UW faculty active in biodiversity research whose students have not submitted a proposal. Committee members will rank proposals using a rubric constructed from the bulleted lists of items listed above.
Applications must be received by 5:00 pm MST April 10th, 2020. Receipt of proposals will be acknowledged by email. Decisions will be made and communicated by approximately May 1st, 2020 with funds available as soon as the budget of the funded proposals are approved by the BI.
Questions are encouraged and may be addressed to the Biodiversity Institute, email@example.com.
