Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research


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 archeology, anthropology, biology, ecology, geography, geology, linguistics, paleontology, and population genetics, but grants will not be restricted to these fields. Grants will be available to PhD students only. Applicants must specify year in doctoral program. Reports are archived in the American Philosophical Society Library.
