Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research in Astrobiology
Applications are due February 15, 2019.
Applications are being accepted for the Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research in Astrobiology. This fund was established in 2006 to support graduate students, post-docs, and early-career scientists and scholars affiliated with U.S. institutions who are undertaking field research in any area of interest to astrobiology.
The fund grew from a partnership between the American Philosophical Society (APS) and the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI). The APS is the oldest learned society in North America, and was a scientific sponsor of Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery in 1804. The fund provides research grants to support the continued exploration of the Earth, recognizing the unique perspective that astrobiology can provide in understanding our planet.
Additional information, including application forms and instructions, is available at the APS’s Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research in Astrobiology page at: http://www.amphilsoc.org/grants/astrobiology
