Patty Daw Memorial Grant

 

The Southwestern Region of the NSS Patty Daw Memorial Grant program provides small grants to individuals / organizations for cave/karst scientific research and/or cave conservation purposes. Grants range from less than $100 to around $600. The SWR can provide one or two grants per year or none. The deadline for applying for a grant is September 30th. All applications will be considered by the SWR Executive Committee. The committee will present their recommendations to the SWR membership at the Winter Technical meeting (usually the first weekend in December). The membership will have the final vote on the grants for that year. In 2012 the SWR grant was renamed the Patty Daw Memorial Grant fund in honor of our former treasurer and SWR member.

An SWR member can download the Patty Daw Memorial Grant Individual Form to request a grant for a worthwhile cave or karst-related project. Organizations or individuals can apply for a grant using the Patty Daw Memorial Grant Organization Form. Print out the appropriate form for your request. Completed applications / request forms should be mailed to the SWR Treasurer at:

Southwestern Region of the NSS
c/o Kate Bach, Treasurer
PO Box 65622
Albuquerque, NM 87193

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Kate Bach.
