The Amy R. Samuels Cetacean Behavior and Conservation (CBC) Award

The Amy R. Samuels Cetacean Behavior and Conservation Grant was established to provide financial support for graduate students studying cetacean behavior and/or cetacean conservation in natural environments. The goal of the award is to encourage original and significant research that focuses on endangered populations or species, or on critically important problems in cetacean behavioral biology. A maximum of two awards up to $2,000 USD each will be awarded to successful applicants. The award must be used for field research; it cannot be used for laboratory research. The award shall be given only if there are proposals deemed worthy by the judges in any given year. Thus, there may be years in which no award is made.

Applications will be accepted through the online Grant Submission System.

Grant Submission Deadline: December 16, 2016
