Senior Research Grants Program

The Senior Research Grants Program provides grants of up to $3000 for Academy members or the undergraduate or graduate students they sponsor to support the purchase of supplies, travel costs, salaries of research assistants, field costs, and limited equipment purchases. While the selection process favors applications from investigators with limited resources, start-up projects, and those with special impact on Indiana, a wide variety of projects have been funded in the past.
