The Brookby Foundation Grant

We have received a grant $5000.00 from The Brookby Foundation in support of our 2018 Small Grants Program.  We shall disburse the entire sum to individual researchers in mid-March.  This is not the first time The Brookby Foundation has supported our Small Grants Program and we are very grateful for its continued support!

Process and Values

We support basic field biological research on all taxa in U.S. prairies and savannas, but we are especially eager to support research on taxa for which funding is scarce, such as insects, fungi, reptiles, spiders, etc. We don't fund many bird projects, in part because there are generally more funds available for the study of birds.

How Can I Help?

Prairie Biotic Research, Inc. has benefitted from generous gifts of various foundations, and both non-profit and for-profit businesses. These are augmented by gifts from individuals concerned with our prairies. Indeed, we can only offer small grants with continued financial support. Please consider joining these enterprises as a donor to Prairie Biotic Research.
