Student Scholarship Grant Program
In 2019, our chapter established a grant program to encourage college and university students to undertake research and projects on California native plants within Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. The goal of the scholarship is to advance the accessibility of native plant research in addition to increasing the feasibility of a project emphasizing the natives in our two beautiful counties. Qualifying topics include, but are not limited to: the ecology of native plants, plant communities, pollination ecology, seed dispersal, taxonomy, phenology, restoration, conservation, and more.
