The Joan Mosenthal DeWind Awards 2009

“The Xerces Society is now accepting applications for two $3,750 awards for research into Lepidoptera conservation.

The DeWind awards are given to students who are engaged in research leading to a university degree related to Lepidoptera conservation and who intend to continue to work in this field. All proposals must be written by the student researcher. Proposed research should have a clear connection to Lepidoptera conservation and must be completed within one year from receiving funds.

Applicants may be graduate or undergraduate students; however, please note that all but one awardee, to date, have been pursuing graduate research. Applications from countries outside the United States will be considered.

The submission deadline is Friday, December 19, 2008 at 5:00 PM PST. Award winners will be announced by March 31, 2009, with the awards given by May 2009.”
