The Berkeley Natural History Field Stations invite applications for the “The Carol Baird Graduate Student Award for Field Research.” Awards will be granted to graduate students to support high quality research that is carried out primarily in the field, based in or around Berkeley’s Natural History Field Stations:
Angelo Coast Range Reserve
Blue Oak Ranch Reserve
Hastings Natural History Reservation
Point Reyes Field Station
Sagehen Creek Field Station
The second competition will support field research beginning in 2019. Proposals of up to 5 pages (total), describing the project, its importance, and proposed methods and logistics, must be submitted electronically to email@example.com by September 30, 2018 with “Carol Baird Graduate Student Award for Field Research” in the subject line.
Awards of up to $22,000 will be made on the basis of merit. Funding may be requested for a single field season or multiple field seasons, and for work at or around a single or several reserves. Support allocations (amount per student, potential for renewal) are flexible, as long as the research is field-based, is of excellent quality, and is substantially improved by this support.
