Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research in Astrobiology

January 17, 2012

This is similar to the other L&C fund I just posted, but it’s specific to astrobiology.

“Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life on Earth and in the universe. It encompasses research in, among others, the fields of astronomy, chemistry, evolutionary biology, field and population biology, geology, microbiology, molecular biology, oceanography, paleontology, and planetary science…


Grants will be available to graduate students and post-doctoral and junior scientists who wish to participate in field studies for their theses or for other purposes...The competition is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and foreign nationals formally affiliated with a U.S.-based institution, who may carry out research anywhere in the world.”

The grants can fund up to around $5,000.

Application deadline: February 1, 2012
