Please visit our Lincoln P. Brower Awards page to read their proposed project abstracts and stay tuned for their results. 

Special note: We received many more applications than we are able to fund. While we regret that we cannot support more, we are delighted by the interest in monarch conservation and excellent questions posed by all of these students. Thank you to all who submitted a proposal for funding this year.
