Elymus canadensis Rainbow Beach

Grant applications are due January 31st, so get on it! 

Students, citizen scientists, conservation groups, and institutions are alerted to consider applying for a grant from the Illinois Native Plant Society to help fund research and to help improve our understanding of rare, threatened, and endangered species in Illinois.

The Survey Grant is a new grant type offered by INPS: these grants will fund searches for Illinois Endangered, Threatened or Rare species for which current data is inadequate to assess their status and for which field surveys and recovery recommendations are needed. Experienced botanical field surveyors, either independent or associated with an institution, are invited to apply for this grant. Partnerships are encouraged. Check out the priority list of species and apply by January 31st!

INPS is continuing its tradition of offering Research Grants to help fund studies on Illinois native plants such as life history, reproductive biology, demography, genetics, comparative site inventories, community ecology, as well as research on threats to native plants and communities, such as invasive species.
