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. The deadlines for the submission of proposals to the chair of the Research Grants Committee are 15 September and 1 March of each year

The Winona Welch Award for Botanical Biodiversity Research supports biodiversity research (e.g., surveys and systematics) of plants and their allies (e.g., algae and fungi). One award of $400.00 is made each year for worthy proposals.
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Grants support projects that promote an environment in which all individuals share a sense of belonging, feel respected, are treated fairly, are provided opportunities to develop professionally, and can excel in their chosen career paths.
The Academy’s INDIANA COMMUNITY GRANTS initiative provides funding to IAS senior scientist members for science education projects and programming presented by other Indiana organizations in which they are involved; organizations with similar goals as the Academy, and further the importance of Indiana science.
