The Lewis and Clark Fund encourages exploratory field studies for the collection of specimens and data and to provide the imaginative stimulus that accompanies direct observation. Applications are invited from disciplines with a large dependence on field studies, such as archaeology, anthropology, biology, ecology, geography, geology, linguistics, paleontology, and population genetics, but grants will not be restricted to these fields.
Grants will be available to doctoral students. Postdoctoral fellows, master’s degree candidates, and undergraduates are not eligible.
Amounts will depend on travel costs but will ordinarily be in the range of several hundred dollars up to about $5,000.
