We eat plants. We breath the oxygen they produce. Plants naturally produce drugs that save lives. Without plants, most life on Earth would not be sustainable.

About This Grant

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.

How It Works

Challenge grants are sponsored prizes. We will accept proposals for campaigns related to botany, and all the campaigns will launch together on September 27th, 2016. The project that ends with the highest number of backers will receive an additional $500 towards its campaign. There are two runners-up prizes of $200 each.
