The Northwest Scientific Association awards grants of up to $1,500 to support student research in the pure and applied sciences. This is an opportunity to fund your research, organize a grant proposal, add substance to your CV, and potentially have your research published in the scientific quarterly, Northwest Science. Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to apply. The NWSA will award research grants up to $750 for winning undergraduate (BA/BS) proposals, and up to $1500 for winning graduate (MA/MS or PhD) proposals. Applicants must be either student or regular members of the NWSA for the year 2023 at the time of application.
Grant monies may only be used to support research travel, lab analysis, materials, and supplies for student research. Proposals requesting salary support or travel to meetings, or publication charges, will not be considered. Funding will only be offered for projects conducted in northwestern North America.
DEADLINE FOR 2023 GRANT COMPETITION IS MONDAY, JANUARY 23rd, AT MIDNIGHT PACIFIC TIME.
