From the chemistry and geological processes at work, to the biology and ecology of the plants, animals, or bacteria that use the water systems, freshwater science is at the intersection of many different disciplines and has a huge impact on the general public.
We will be launching a new grant challenge to feature projects working on freshwater ecosystems. These campaigns will launch their fundraising efforts in late October. The projects with the most backers will receive extra funding towards their campaigns. If you are working in freshwater science, please submit a project idea below by October 10th to join the challenge!
Once you submit, our team will review your proposal and get back in touch to help you prepare for publishing your project page in the weeks leading up to launch day.
Some past examples of successfully funded projects in freshwater research:
Any project conducting research in or on freshwater ecosystems is invited to participate. Please get in touch if you aren't sure about your idea, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Interdisciplinary projects are more than welcome! Researchers must be based out of institutions or organizations in the US, UK, Australia, or Canada.
