HARVARD UNIVERSITY HERBARIA

GRANTS-IN-AID OF UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH

Description:
The Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ) and the Harvard University Herbaria (HUH) are pleased to award small grants in support of faculty-supervised research by Harvard College undergraduates. Projects in any subject area are eligible for support, although priority may be given to projects that utilize MCZ or HUH research collections, laboratories and other facilities, and to related fieldwork. Funds from the HUH are primarily available to support projects in the field of plant biology. Projects that facilitate senior honors theses or associated preliminary studies are particularly encouraged. Priority is given to first time applicants. Applications must include a brief research proposal (~750 words) with citations, and identify a Harvard faculty member who has agreed to supervise the project. The proposal should describe the project's goals, the specific plan to accomplish those goals, and the role of the faculty sponsor. Awards range from $500 to $2500 and may provide support for the academic year (fall and spring semesters) or summer. Applicants for spring and summer grants are strongly encouraged to simultaneously apply for research support from the Harvard College Research Program (HCRP). Decisions typically will be announced within one month of each deadline.
