Small grants program

In 1996, Rice Creek Associates, established a program of small grants in support of research at Rice Creek Field Station.  Most awards will be between $500 and $3,000.  Additional funds in support of living expenses for visiting scholars may be available at the discretion of the RCA Board of Directors.  Grant funds may be used for stipends, travel, supplies, equipment, publication costs or secretarial support necessary to carry out research at the Field Station.  Proposals for the next round of funding will be due by  March 15, 2016.  Awards will be announced on or about April 15.  Work can focus on any subject area appropriate to the facilities and resources available at Rice Creek.  Researchers do not have to be members of the SUNY Oswego faculty or staff.

For further information, see the latest Call for Proposals (pdf) specifications.
