Funding Opportunity for Undergrad Research: Apply by 11/27/17

We are pleased to announce the first call for proposals for the Siering/Wilson research endowment, a new program designed to fund undergraduate research activities in the broad disciplines of Microbial Ecology and Environmental Microbiology. Proposals from undergraduate students (freshman to seniors) in ALL departments within the College of Natural Resources (CNRS) at Cal Poly Humboldt will be considered. Projects may be theoretical, investigative, hypothesis-driven, or applied in focus. Since most questions related to the field of microbial ecology are interdisciplinary in nature, projects that involve collaborations among faculty mentors with different disciplinary expertise will be given preference.

We anticipate multiple grants of $500-$1000 will be awarded to support projects to be conducted in the Spring, Summer and/or Fall of 2018. However, conferred award amounts may be higher if there is a limited number of proposals received.  Funds may be used for research supplies and services (e.g. DNA sequencing, environmental analysis), but may not be used for travel, wages, or consulting fees. 

See the Request for Proposals (RFP) application - which details how to apply for this exciting new opportunity.
The Deadline for submission is Monday November 27 – 5 pm Pacific Standard Time.
