The E. E. Williams Research Grant Committee is now accepting applications for the Herpetologists’ League E.E. Williams Graduate Student Grant for graduate research (full announcement attached). These awards are named in honor of the late Ernest E. Williams, the first Distinguished Herpetologist of The Herpetologists’ League.
We are soliciting proposals from graduate students from any country in the world who is (or becomes) a member of the Herpetologists’ League (cost for students is US$35 [on-line only] or $60 [with print copies of the journals]). Winners are selected in each of 5 categories (conservation, behavior, morphology/systematics, ecology, and physiology) and will be announced at the World Congress of Herpetology, this year’s meeting venue for herpetologists belonging to the Herpetologists’ League, the Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles, and the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.
In an effort to reach more students, we are broadening our advertising for this grant and we would appreciate it if you could post the attached notice on your website or in your journal. As the proposals are due in mid December, a posting date before November would be most appropriate, but earlier postings are welcome.
We would like to point out that the grant is now in the amount US$1000.00 for each category.
Please let me know if you intend to post information about this grant. For more information on this grant and on the Herpetologists’ League, please go to:
