Montana Native Plant Society (MNPS)
Grants of up to $1,500 to Montana individuals for studies and projects involving the conservation of plants native to the state. The purpose of this program is to stimulate conservation, research, and educational activities that promote appreciation for native plants and plant communities. These grants are intended to promote native plant conservation through a better understanding of Montana’s native flora and the factors affecting their survival.
Project or study proposals must pertain to native plants of Montana. Preference will be given to proposals that: 1) generate research data or public support that advances the conservation of native plants in the wild; 2) demonstrate initiative and cooperation with other organizations or agencies. Projects emphasizing operational costs, such as utilities or rent, will be less preferred.
Eligible expenses include:
1) Direct costs of travel, meals, and lodging for research, conservation, or education projects.
2) Supply and service expenses for the sole purpose of the project (e.g., consumable supplies such as CDs/media cards, laboratory chemicals, soil, nursery stock, and services such as phone and computer time).
3) Direct printing costs for public outreach projects or research publications.
