Each academic year, the Cave Research Foundation (CRF) accepts proposals for graduate student research in cave and karst studies. Proposals may be in any field of the earth, natural, or social, sciences as long as the research addresses topics related to caves or karst. The Foundation may award up to $10,000 annually, distributed among one or more grant recipients. Typically, awards range from $1,000 to $3,000. The truly exceptional proposal, which involves two or more scientific disciplines, may receive a Thomas C. Kane Memorial Award and up to an additional $2,000 in grant support. Students must be enrolled in a degree-granting institution. Competition is open to U.S. and international institutions, but application materials must be in English. Research at either the Master's or Ph.D. level is eligible.
IMPORTANT NOTE: proposal deadline is March 2, 2015.
