The Society of Herbarium Curators is offering two $500 research grants for students. The awards will be made 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, fieldwork to generate vouchers for revisionary or floristic work, collecting morphological data from specimens, traveling to herbaria, or making and distributing physical specimens.

Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible. The student and the student’s research advisor must be members of the Society of Herbarium Curators at the time of application.

The application deadline is 1 Feb 2015 Learn more at http://www.herbariumcurators.org/awards/.
