The Wild Basin Creative Research Center is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for 2017/18 creative research awards from the Hook Endowed Wild Basin Creative Research Fund. The Dr. Allan W. Hook Endowed Wild Basin Creative Research Fund offers awards up to $3,000 for creative research by students in the schools of Natural Sciences, Education, Behavioral and Social Sciences, Management and Business, and Humanities. The fund also offers research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students from other institutions that are based at the university’s Wild Basin Creative Research Center and the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve system.
The deadline for applications is Friday, March 10th, 2017 at 5pm. Applicants should review the fellowship guide and fill out the attached application form (available on the Wild Basin website welcome page) and submit it via email (or mail) to the Director of Wild Basin (Dr. Barbara Dugelby; firstname.lastname@example.org). Interested students should contact the Wild Basin Director or Wild Basin Research Director (Dr. Amy Belaire, email@example.com) if they have questions. Descriptions of past projects supported by the Endowment can be found on the Wild Basin website.
This opportunity is made possible by the commitment and generosity of Dr. Allan W. Hook and Rosemary Guzman Hook, who established the endowment to honor Hook’s life work and dedication to providing students with opportunities both in and outside of the classroom. Dr. Hook’s philosophy is that “one can learn more from the natural world than from the human-made world.” The fund will promote a greater understanding of and appreciation for the Wild Basin Preserve and the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve system.
