Call for Proposals for Research Grants
The EEB Program at Texas A&M University is requesting proposals for EEB Research Grants ($1,500 each). The intended objective of these awards is to facilitate preliminary data collection by EEB Ph.D. students.
Only Ph.D. students enrolled in the EEB Program may apply. EEB students who did not receive an award during the last round of funding will be heavily prioritized.
Deadline for Application
Applications are due by 5pm on Friday, April 21st. Submit your application to firstname.lastname@example.org
Grant Proposal Format
The application must contain the following information:
1) Proposed investigation – this section should include significance of the proposed research in the big picture of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology; background on the specific question and study system; specific research objectives and hypotheses; and methods. This section is limited to 500 words plus literature cited and up to two figures and tables.
2) Budget – this section should include a line-by-line budget and a short budget justification. Make sure your budget matches your research objectives and hypotheses you introduced in part 1. In other words, if you are requesting funds for a camera trap, it should be clear from part 1 why you would need a camera trap.
3) Advisor’s letter – a letter from your advisor approving your proposed activities is required.
