Our Partners

We welcome all levels of partnerships with the SEEDS program. This can be as simple as introducing one of your students attending the ESA annual meeting into the suite of SEEDS activities or sponsoring students to our leadership meetings. At the other end of the spectrum, we also welcome opportunities to collaborate on your grant proposals to recruit diverse students for your programs, or develop projects that engage our SEEDS chapters.

SEEDS Partnerships for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) 

The Ecological Society of America invites you to partner with its award-winning SEEDS – Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity and Sustainability – program to provide research or internship opportunities to underrepresented, diverse students in ecology. With your support, SEEDS plans to integrate your internship or research opportunity into a coordinated program for a well-rounded career development experience.
