Mary A. Bancroft Memorial Scholarship Request for Proposals

The Kansas Native Plant Society (KNPS) is accepting applications for a $1,000 scholarship in support of graduate student research that enhances our understanding of native plant species or their ecosystems and conservation. This scholarship is open to all graduate students regularly enrolled in a Kansas college or university. Proposals must be technically sound and directly applicable to our priorities in Kansas.

A complete proposal shall include the application form, two letters of support from the student’s major professor and/or advisors, and copies of your college/university transcripts. The application form includes a project description, time line, budget, career goals, and a statement of your interest in plants.

Proposals will be assessed based on the merits of the proposed project and how well they fit the objectives of the scholarship. The budget will not be used as a basis for assessing or ranking proposals.

Reviewers will consist of scientists and non-scientists, so keep your narrative readable to a wide audience. The KNPS Awards Committee will review applications and announce results in mid-April.

Awardees will receive recognition at the KNPS annual meeting. They will also be recognized in the KNPS newsletter and on the KNPS website.

Successful applicants will agree to include the following acknowledgement in all publications resulting from research supported under this program: "The Kansas Native Plant Society provided partial support for this work."

The deadline for receipt of proposals is March 15, 2015. Award recipients will be notified by April 15, 2015.
