GIAR/FGST Awards

The Grants-in-Aid of Research (GIAR) program was established by the SICB in 1996 to provide small awards to graduate students in support of their research in the fields of integrative and comparative biology. Awards are made payable to the individual recipients. No part of an award may be used for the payment of indirect costs to the recipient's institution. All funds must be expended directly in support of the proposed investigation. Any equipment purchased shall be the property of the institution.

The Fellowship of Graduate Student Travel (FGST) is an award established in 2002 to provide student funds for travel and other expenses at distant research laboratories, museums, or field sites. The primary purpose is for travel to "distant" research sites to learn specialized techniques or to use unique equipment or collections. Awards are made payable to the individual recipients. No part of an award may be used for the payment of indirect costs to the recipient's institution. All funds must be expended directly in support of the proposed investigation.

Forms, information and FAQ will be made available closer to the opening date.
Deadline will be during October 2015. Please check back closer to this date.
