Experiment is launching a new botany grant challenge to support research studying plants. We hope to highlight the diversity of projects in botany including the study of the physiology, structure, genetics, ecology, distribution, classification, and economic importance of plants.
The challenge is not limited to those topics and we welcome any interdisciplinary projects. Please get in touch with our team if you'd like to talk about your project idea. We are accepting approximately 15 projects to launch their Experiment crowdfunding campaigns later in September. The projects with the highest number of backers will receive extra awards on top of their raised funds.
Submissions are due on September 13th, 2016.
Any project working on some aspect of botany is invited to apply. Field work may take place anywhere in the world, but researchers must be based out of institutions or organizations in the US, UK, Australia, or Canada, or else receive permission from us to submit.
