International Speleological Participation Grants
Grants are made in support of international speleological participation, as administered by the NSS International Secretary. Review of written applications is made by a 3-person committee consisting of the International Secretary, the Chairman of the Research Advisory Committee and the President of the National Speleological Society. The grants are funded from the International Support Fund, which was created with the revenue remaining after the Eighth International Congress of Speleology, hosted by the NSS in 1981 in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
