The Society of Herbarium Curators recently posted the following announcement about a student research grant:

 

Two $500 research grants will be awarded to students whose research contributes to or uses herbarium resources in ways that augment the collections. Research on any taxa typically accessioned in herbaria including all plant, fungal, lichen, and algal lineages is eligible. Supported activities could include, but are not limited to,St fieldwork to generate vouchers for revisionary or floristic work, collecting morphological data from specimens, traveling to herbaria, or making and distributing physical specimens. Thus, students’ overarching research could include molecular approaches but the merit of the proposal would be based on the ability of the work to contribute to building or improving herbarium resources. Additionally, meta-analysis of herbarium data would also be eligible, provided that a component of the research includes direct study of specimens.

Deadline: 1 Feb 2015
