TCS Grant Information

The primary goal of the Cycad Society (TCS) is to support and contribute to cycad research, conservation, and education. One of the ways in which we do this is through our annual grant cycle. Each year, proposals are accepted by the Research, Conservation and Grants Committee chair until the end of March and are reviewed by the committee and voted on by the board of directors at the annual board meeting. Grants typically range from $500-$2,500 and are usually for single-year projects. Grantees are required to write an article for the Cycad Newsletter, as well as a final report summarizing the primary results of the study and detailing how TCS funds were used during the course of the study. The TCS grant guidelines were updated in April 2007, and the revised version is available in PDF format by clicking the link below:

TCS Grant Guidelines

In 2007, the TCS Grant Program got into full swing with a donation of $6,679 from one of our members. This single donation allowed TCS to fund three important cycad research/conservation grants. Then, in 2008, the same member donated $4,000 and several of the society's directors contributed an additional $2,600 -- which then allowed three more grants to be awarded.

Additional grants have been awarded in recent years. Below are individual pages dedicated to the TCS grants awarded in the years indicated:
