2015 Small Grants RFP

On site research with Dr. Iris and crew

Each year the University of Wyoming National Park Service Research Station awards numerous small grants for research in the Greater Yellowstone Area.  The grants (up to $5,000) are designed for a summer research investigation in the park.  Research areas funded have been diverse, including topics from A(rt history) to Z(oology).  Anthropologists may be interested in the Archeology, Historic Structures, History and Museum Collections sections.  The grants are perfect for a graduate student.  These year’s suggested areas include museum collection research, soundscapes and ecology, just to name a few.  And then there is that landscape at the station with the Teton’s across the lake and fellow researchers on site. 
Perhaps research in the Greater Yellowstone Area is in your future for 2015?

UW-NPS a Cooperative Effort

The University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center is a cooperative effort between the University of Wyoming and the National Park Service. Headquartered on the University of Wyoming campus in Laramie, the research center was established to foster research in National Parks in the Rocky Mountain Region. In addition, the center operates a field research station at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park which is open from mid-May through mid-October.

The primary function of the Research Station is to promote excellence in research by furnishing housing, laboratory space, transportation, equipment and financial support to enable investigators in the biological, physical and social sciences to access the rich and diverse environments of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, Bridger-Teton and Targhee National Forest and the Gros Vente and Teton Wilderness Areas.

The research station is currently open for researchers. Additionally we will be hosting our popular seminar series starting in June please visit our News page for more information.
