Scholarships up to $3,000 for Student Research Projects
The Wild Basin Creative Research Center is now accepting applications for 2018/19 research scholarships 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.
This year, the application process is through an online portal (here: Apply Hook Wild Basin Fellowship). Applicants should review the Fellowship Application Guide and Instructions, prepare their full proposal, and after review and approval from their faculty supervisor, submit it through the online portal. Interested students should contact the Wild Basin Director if they have questions. Descriptions of past projects supported by the Endowment can be found on the Research portion of the Wild Basin website.
We encourage you to share this announcement with faculty and students in your school and departments. We look forward to receiving a diversity of project applications from many academic areas!
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. His 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.
