Alan H. Kamb Grant for Research on Kansas Snakes
The KHS annually awards a grant ($300.00) in honor and memory of Alan H. Kamb, longtime supporter and member of the Kansas Herpetological Society.
KHS members are eligible to apply for The Alan H. Kamb Grant for Research on Kansas Snakes. The winner will be announced at the annual meeting in November. If no qualified proposals are submitted, no award will be made for that year.
The KHS Awards Committee will entertain proposals for research on Kansas snakes. The proposal must be limited to ten typed pages, and should include, but not be limited to the following: title, name of researcher, contact information, abstract, introduction and justification, objectives or hypotheses, materials and methods, significance of research and possible results, literature cited, timetable, and proposed budget. The research must be conducted on one or more native Kansas snake species. Additionally, a majority of the field work or observations must be proposed to occur in Kansas, or the data must be proposed to be collected, at least in part, on Kansas specimens.
Proposals for this grant should be sent to the KHS Awards Committee Chair, and must be postmarked by 25 September. The grant recipient will be announced at the KHS annual meeting in November. New applications will be accepted after 1 January of the following year.
