2022 RFPs for TWO Whitebark Pine Student Research Grants

2022 Request for Proposals for TWO Whitebark Pine Student Research Grants

The mission of the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation (WPEF) is to “promote the conservation of
whitebark pine and other high elevation five needle white pine ecosystems through education, restoration, management, and research.” In support of this mission, the WPEF offers a research grant of $1000 to an undergraduate or graduate student (MS or PhD) conducting research and writing a thesis on whitebark pine. For 2022 we are also partnering with Jon Van Gundy to offer another $1000 scholarship for anyone who is doing research in whitebark pine dynamics under climate change.
