Third Party Grants

Through our Third Party Grants Program, PBR enables independent researchers to write grants to other agencies under the aegis of this non-profit corporation, thereby opening up new sources of potential funding. Proposals may be for any amount, for the study of any species in wild or restored native grasslands and savannas anywhere in the USA. Upon receipt, proposals are reviewed by our Scientific Advisors and, if approved, sent on to the agency. If this opportunity interests you, please ask for more information through our Contact form.

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.
