The Robert A. Sheldon Memorial Fund was established in 1971 by a contribution from Dr. Joanne S. Sharpe in memory of her late husband, who was an outstanding graduate student in the Department of Zoology. This fund has traditionally supported field research for graduate students working away from campus. We will award a monetary award to one applicant that will be a reimbursement for travel or research supplies expenses. First priority will be given to a student who does not have alternative sources of funding.
Applications should include:
There will be one award of $500. The funds are not available until August and the recipient must be enrolled during that time.
The Graduate Program Committee will review all applications and make the final decision. Applications should be submitted to Katherine Adams (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5:00 p.m. on April 1.
Previous winners include: Sara Heisel (2014), Cara Love (2015), Molly Fisher (2016)
