Mazamas Research Grant Funding

Request for Proposals

The Mazamas, a 3,000 member Oregon mountaineering organization headquartered in Portland OR, is soliciting research grant proposals from scientists and their graduate students. Our organization supports research projects in keeping with the purposes of the Mazamas, including the investigation of geologic features, biotic communities, and human endeavors pertaining to mountains, forests, rivers, and lakes.

The Committee evaluates each proposal and awards grants to selected applicants in the spring of each year. Grants range from $500 to as much as $3,500 from a total amount available this year of approximately $11,500. The Publications Committee may edit and publish the final report of each grantee’s research in the Mazamas Annual Journal.

The Research Committee must receive grant applications by the deadlines listed on the web link below (late Jan or early Feb 2010, depending on the type of grant).
