What Are Long Range Planning Grants?
The ESA yearly budget frequently contains funds for long range planning grants. Sections, Chapters and Standing Committees are eligible to apply for these funds which are to be used for projects that move the Society towards long range planning goals. Only one application from a Section, Chapter or Standing Committee is permitted.
The announcement for the grant proposals is issued in the fall. Proposals are evaluated by a subcommittee of the Governing Board and those awarded grants are notified in the winter. Reports on the progress of the activities supported by these grants are due in August at the time of the ESA annual meeting.
The grant announcement, the application form, the criteria for the awards, and some examples of past awards are available on this website.
