The objectives of the Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE) are the promotion of the study of organic evolution and the integration of the various fields of science concerned with evolution. The GREG (Graduate Research Excellence Grant) R. C. Lewontin Early Awards are to assist students in the early stages of their PhD programs by enabling them to collect preliminary data or to enhance the scope of their research beyond current funding limits.
Funding is not limited to any particular aspect of research. Funds can be used to collect preliminary data (to pursue additional sources of support) or to enhance the scope of their research beyond current funding limits (e.g. by visiting additional field sites, or working at other labs). Recipients are not required to use the awarded funds by a certain time, and may deviate from any timeline described in their proposal.
Awards will range from $1,500 – $2,500 USD.
PhD students in their first two years of their program and Master’s students in the first year of their program are eligible.
Student applicants must be members of SSE, and are advised to join SSE, if not already members, as soon as possible to facilitate their applications.
