Dear colleagues,

 The American Cetacean Society-San Francisco Bay Chapter ( ACS-SFBay ) would like to encourage students to apply for our upcoming 2017 StudentResearch Grants.

 ACS - SF BAY Guidelines for Student Research Grant:

The San Francisco Bay American CetaceanSociety chapter Grants-in-Aid of Research fund offerssmall research grants for direct costs of scientific, field-based projects focusingon cetaceans. The Society invites proposals from all cetacean-relateddisciplines, including the social sciences, which focus on cetaceansand/or their habitats.

 SF Bay ACS chapter particularlywelcomes applications from early-career researchers such as graduatestudents and researchers with less than 10 years’ post-doctoralexperience, and researchers whose work focuses on cetaceans on theWest Coast of North American, with emphasis in the Bay Area.


The SF Bay American Cetacean Society chapter has a long-standing commitment toproviding young scientists with ‘seed money’ for research projectsin cetacean-related disciplines.

 Currently, SF Bay ACS chapter grant awardsrange from $100 to $1,000; the Society highly encourages funds to be usedin a ‘match’ program to maximize funding potential.


Funding is available to applicants who are themselves active(dues-paying) SF Bay ACS chapter members. 

SF Bay ACS chapter funds are intendedto strengthen conservation efforts through applied field-based researchand opportunities outside of the laboratory.  Funds may not be usedfor salaries, stipends, honoraria, or other compensatory expenses.


The National American Cetacean Society and other chapters of ACS alsoparticipate in grant-making initiatives and will also submit Request ForProposals (RFPs) coincident with their funding cycles.  Forinformation about specific chapters and their grant-making programs,please visit the Chapter page of the National American CetaceanSociety website: www. acsonline.org.

 3.  An itemized, one-year budget, including estimated costsfor supplies, equipment, travel, etc. Costs should be kept reasonable. Abudget justification should be included.  Budget should not exceedrequested funding amount; however, details of additional funding sourcessupporting the research and how those funds will be used are helpful inevaluating applications.
