April 25 deadline for grad student research funding

PULLMAN, Wash. – Individual and groups of graduate students are invited to apply for seed money from the Natural Resource Conservation Endowment Fund to support their research and projects. The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, April 25.

The privately endowed Washington State University fund supports efforts related to, but not limited to, energy, small-scale agricultural concepts, community education, wildlife conservation and/or recovery, related psychological and sociological studies, domestic and international studies and other projects related to conservation of renewable and non-renewable natural resources, including biotic and abiotic ecological components.

Interdisciplinary and collaborative proposals in such areas as education, psychology, sociology, environmental engineering, sciences, agriculture and veterinary sciences are encouraged.

The work should be oriented toward practical application of theory rather than strictly theory-oriented research in order to provide public uses or participants with a maximum opportunity to benefit.

For more information and application guidelines, contact Nancy Shrope, nshrope@wsu.edu, or Pam Kelley, pjkelley@wsu.edu, in the Office of Grant and Research Development.
