Here is an announcement from the California Lichen Society (CALS) about their Grants Program.


California Lichen Society Grants Program

Applications due October 1

The California Lichen Society offers small grants to support research pertaining to the lichens of California. No geographical constraints are placed on grantees or their associated institutions. The grant application process is very straightforward; except for the letter of support, it is possible to complete an application in two hours or less. Required information includes project title, description, time frame, budget, academic status, etc.

Applications are reviewed anonymously by members of the grants committee based on completeness, technical quality, consistency with CALS goals, intended use of funds, and likelihood of completion. Grant proposals received by October 1 each year will be considered for that year's grant cycle. Usually, two grants are awarded to separate individuals, however during some years both grants are awarded to one person. All grants are partially dependent on member contributions, therefore the amounts of these awards may vary from year to year. This year the total amount of grants to be awarded is $1750.

The application instructions can be read online or downloaded from



Obligations of recipients: 1) Acknowledge the California Lichen Society in any reports, publications, or other products resulting from the work supported by CALS. 2) Submit an article to the Bulletin of the California Lichen Society. 3) Submit any relevant rare lichen data to California Natural Diversity Data Base using NDDB’s field survey forms. Please email submissions or questions to the committee Chair at gra...@californialichens.org <mailto:gra...@californialichens.org> by October 1 of the current calendar year. The grants Chair is Tom Carlberg.
