2011-2012 Grad Grants for Research in Urban Ecology, Spring Competition
In 2011 CAP LTER is continuing its program in support of graduate student research. Grad Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis to graduate students conducting research within the CAP LTER study area on some aspect of urban ecology. These projects do not necessarily have to be part of current CAP LTER research activities, but priority will be given to work that compliments and potentially enhances ongoing LTER research or that uses LTER data resources or sites. For more details, see the full Request for Proposals.
