The Rhode Island Wild Plant Society offers an annual grant to aid individuals in the study of wild plants and their habitats. To qualify you must be an educator, a member of a Rhode Island botanical or environmental association or a student in a field related to botany or environmental studies.
The grant is for up to $2,500 and includes a one year membership to RIWPS. The project goal must involve environmental activities or research in any area of study related to wild plants and/or their habitats. These activities may involve such things as installation of gardens, invasive removal, or support for extracurricular activities with a community outreach component. It can also be used for project materials, workshops or courses. An applicant must be a Rhode Island resident or a student at a Rhode Island educational institution. The Rhode Island residency does not apply to students.
Applications must be received by February 28, 2021.
