Grant awards are available for graduate students conducting research at Boyd Deep Canyon Desert Research Center. The competition is open to all graduate students enrolled in an accredited college or university. However, preference will be given to those enrolled at the University of California and California State University.
More information can be found in the downloadable application form. Boyd Deep Canyon is a gateway reserve and research projects that are headquartered at the reserve, but conducted off-site, also will be considered.
Graduate students should submit their applications to Dr. Chris Tracy by May 17, 2019, for review by the selection panel. Review criteria are described in the application. Awards will be announced by June 3, 2019. We anticipate making one or more awards that total a maximum of $5,000. Applications and supporting materials should be submitted electronically.
