Student Grant Program
This program provides grants to support student research in the earth sciences. The emphasis will be on research topics that relate to the mission and priorities of the foundation. Please read a statement regarding our mission and priorities to determine whether your research is related. A total of ten grants per year are available, for amounts of up to $3000 per grant. Undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers at accredited U.S. colleges and universities or research institutions are eligible to apply for grants.
To apply for a grant, you will need to submit the following (original, plus two copies of each):
Note that the final signature block on the Grant Application Form is to be signed by an authorized approver for your institution. Most universities have a grant or sponsored research office that is required to review and approve external grant requests. To avoid delays in the processing of your grant application, please check the policies at your institution to ensure that your application receives the proper internal approvals before it is submitted to the Evolving Earth Foundation.
Many universities do not allow students to be listed as the Principal Investigator on grant applications. In those cases, the faculty advisor may be listed as the Principal Investigator with the student as co-investigator. The student researcher is expected to write the grant proposal and to perform the work as outlined in the grant application under the supervision of the faculty advisor.
The Evolving Earth Foundation will only provide grants to accredited non-profit institutions. If requested, you may need to provide proof of your institution's current IRS Tax-Exempt Status. Grant award checks are written to the institution, not to an individual.
Our 2016 grant cycle is now closed, congratulations to the successful applicants and our thanks to all who submitted proposals (see grant recipients by year below). Our grant program will reopen this fall for the 2017 cycle. All submitted applications and associated materials will retained by the Evolving Earth Foundation; they will not be returned to the author.
