The object of this fund is to give small bursaries, maximum £1,000 per year, to support research and education projects specifically relating to Rhododendrons, Camellias or Magnolias, which further our knowledge of and/or promote these three genera. This could also be a grant towards travel expenses involved in carrying out the research.
The successful applicant would undertake to produce a paper outlining the results of the project, within three months of completion of the project, for publication (but not exclusively) in an RCMG publication and/or Group website.
Applicants can apply for a bursary towards research anywhere in the world.
Applications will be subject to scrutiny on a first come, first serve basis, by a small panel appointed by the RCMG, and must show clear objectives and the methods for achieving these. If desired, a preliminary outline of a proposal can be discussed with the Fund Manager to assess its suitability before applying formally.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
