    Two funding opportunities from the Gopher Tortoise Council

    The J. Larry Landers Student Research Award
    is a Gopher Tortoise Council competitive grant program for undergraduate
    and graduate college students. Proposals can address research concerning
    gopher tortoise biology or any other relevant aspect of upland habitat
    conservation and management. The amount of the award is variable, but has
    averaged $1,000.00 over the last few years.

    The proposal should be limited to four pages in length and should include a
    description of the project and a concise budget. A brief resume of the
    student also needs to be provided.

    This is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to
    access funding for their projects. In addition, students are expected to
    present their research at the Annual Gopher Tortoise Council meeting or
    contribute to an edition of "The Burrow", GTC's newsletter.

    The deadline for grant proposals each year is the 15th of September.

    Please send submissions to:

    Department of Biology
    Georgia Southwestern State University

    Am I the only one who thinks Yvonne should sign up for an online class so she can qualify for a grant?
