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 2021 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.
Please note: A simple letter of support is required, signed by your graduate or undergraduate advisor with only the following statement “I recommend the proposal, am aware of the submission, and approve the submitted budget.”
2021 Student Grant proposal deadline is February 15, 2021 at midnight PST. Click here for proposal and submission guidelines.
