Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research

Claire Lewis diving in the Maldives (2019 Field Scholar)

The Lewis and Clark Fund encourages exploratory field studies for the collection of specimens and data and to provide the imaginative stimulus that accompanies direct observation.

Applications are invited from disciplines with a large dependence on field studies, such as archaeology, anthropology, biology, ecology, geography, geology, linguistics, paleontology, and population genetics, but grants will not be restricted to these fields.

Graduate students and postdoctoral and junior scientists wishing to pursue projects in astrobiological field studies should consult the program description and application forms for the Lewis and Clark Fund in Exploration and Field Research in Astrobiology.

Deadlines:      November 15, 2023, for applications; letters of support due November 10, 2023
Notification:   April 2024, for work to begin in May and later
