Every year the American Philosophical Society publishes their grant and fellowship programs. Here is detailed information about the programs that pertain most directly to BSA and their members.
They have revised the Grants section of their website, www.amphilsoc.org, for 2019–2020. They will announce any changes to programs at their website, so we invite you to check the Grants section periodically.
In support of field biologists, researchers, field naturalists, faculty members, and students, and artists with interests in the natural history sciences, Eagle Hill has long been recognized as offering hard-to-find seminars which provide important opportunities for training and meeting others who are dedicated to continually learning more about natural history. These seminars are of special interest because they focus on the natural history of one of North America's most spectacular and pristine natural areas, the coast of eastern Maine ... from Acadia National Park to Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge and beyond.
August 11-25, 2019
