Travel Grants

Stewart and Jarmila Peck Collection Enhancement Endowment

In 2021, Stewart and Jarmila Peck established the Stewart and Jarmila Peck Collection Enhancement Endowment (the Peck Fund) with the Center for Systematic Entomology (CSE). The primary purpose of the endowment is to help students and researchers travel to the Florida State Collection of Arthropods (FSCA) to work with and ultimately improve the collections.

With the Peck Fund, the CSE will be able to offer larger grants than previously available. Grant size is limited (generally less than $2000 each) and subject to fund availability. How many grants offered per year depends on the number and size of other grants awarded that year. Proposals are evaluated by the GGE Committee and approved by the CSE Board of Directors.

Interested persons should contact the appropriate curator at the FSCA or the GGE Committee to inquire about potential work and availability of funding.

Only members of the CSE can apply for grants. Applicants should submit a short (one to two page) proposal outlining the intended work. Items to include: Title, researcher's name and contact information (major professor if a student), importance/purpose and scope of work, proposed time of visit, and budget. Send proposals to: Grants Committee, Center for Systematic Entomology, P. O. Box 141874, Gainesville FL 32614-1874, or Email: csentomology@gmail.com.

After the project is finished, a report of the accomplished work with some photographs should be sent to the Grants Committee. This report will be formatted and posted on the CSE website. The CSE and Peck Endowment are to be acknowledged in any ensuing publication.
