The Wetland Foundation Awards
The Wetland Foundation provides conference and field travel grants to students of wetland science. We accept applications once per year (due on November 18). See below for detailed information about types of grants and what is required in an application package.
Types of Grants (apply for only one):
Conference Travel Grant Type 1 (up to $1000): For advanced undergraduate and graduate students who have never attended a wetland scientific conference and who have limited funds for travel. The grant will cover in person or virtual attendance.
Conference Travel Grant Type 2 (up to $1600): For advanced undergraduate and graduate students with limited funding to present their wetland research findings at a conference. The grant will cover in person or virtual attendance.
Field Travel Grant Type 1 ($1000): For outstanding graduate students with limited funding to defray travel expenses associated with thesis or dissertation research on wetlands.
Field Travel Grant Type 2 ($600): For promising undergraduate students to attend a field course or workshop focused on wetlands.
The Seneca Award ($2000): For an outstanding student qualifying for a Field Type 1 grant AND whose research focuses on wetland plant ecology or restoration.
Who Can Apply: Any student currently enrolled full-time at an academic institution in the USA and who meets the specific criteria for one of the types of grants listed above. The funded activity (conference, research, course) may take place anywhere, including non-USA locations, and international students are eligible IF they are attending a university in the USA.
