EAS FOUNDATION FOR HONEY BEE RESEARCH
Academic Unit: Inquire with your unit
Memorial Deadline: Wednesday 27th, January 2021
External Deadline: Monday 1st, February 2021
The EAS Foundation for Honey Bee Research is a competitive grant program developed from donations received from beekeepers and others interested in funding research on topical problems in honey bees.
Proposals are solicited annually with award amounts to be determined by spring before the EAS annual meeting. Requests for “seed money” to provide investigators the opportunity to collect preliminary data or as “add on” funds to combine with other funding sources to continue present research will also be considered. Requests for support for student projects (undergraduate summer employees/graduate student) or for equipment/supplies for distinct research projects are given highest priority. We welcome separate, discrete project proposals and requests that identify pieces of ongoing research programs where additional funds can accomplish an objective of a larger program. Grant funds may be used for supplies, equipment, salaries, travel necessary for data collection or other research tasks, or other appropriate uses by the recipient. As a nonprofit organization, the EAS Foundation does not pay overhead on funded research grants.
There will be one (or more) awards available; the total amount available for all awards is $10,000. The award will be announced at the EAS Conference but available by May 1st. The principle investigator may be invited to present their findings at the next year’s EAS Conference, travel and lodging cost associated with presenting will be covered by EAS and we will publicize the award to aid in solicitation of additional funds for subsequent years.An article for the EAS Journal summarizing the research and results must be submitted by September 1 of that year.
DEADLINE for application is February 1st. Additional submission details can be found below, and further inquiries can be directed to the Honey Bee Research Committee at HoneyBeeResearch@easternapiculture.org.
