New Grant Award

Announcing a new grant opportunity for the study of Florida's native plants and habitats, particularly studies that are typically not supported by traditional funding sources.  The Cornelia McNamara Grant is named in honor of a long-term member who passed away last year.  The Cornelia McNamara grant is made possible by a generous donation from Chris Calder, a Cuplet Fern member who wants to advance the knowledge of our native plant heritage.  Chris's donation will allow FNPS to award grants for four years, so there will be an annual request for proposals.  

The specific grant objectives are:

•         To advance the study of Florida’s native plant species and habitats 
•         To promote efforts that yield quantitative data and information about native plant species 
•         To encourage data collection that is typically unsupported and unfunded by traditional academic institutions and funders

We encourage FNPS members to submit proposals, and to thank Chris Calder for his generous support! 

The grant application is coming soon!  Check the Awards and Grants page
