Janet Novak, Club President and a member of the Flora Project, has asked to help spread the word about the Bayard Long Award. This is the club’s grant for students doing botanical research. To be eligible, the research must be related to plants that occur within a 50-mile radius of Philadelphia. Note that the research doesn’t have to be done in this area — it’s enough to be studying species that occur in this area.
The award is generally $500. We give out two awards a year, and the deadline for the first cycle is approaching… February 15. Applying is quite simple; see the application information on the club’s web site at http://www.philbotclub.org/long_award.html .
