The Annual UCLA La Kretz Center and Stunt Ranch Reserve Research Awards

The UCLA La Kretz Center & Stunt Ranch Reserve Research Awards is an opportunity for UCLA student scientists to receive funding for research proposals related to environmental, ecological, evolutionary, and/or conservation science in California. Since 2015, this annual research award has been awarded to multiple UCLA undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral scientists studying various subjects contributing to California conservation science. Applicants can be awarded anywhere from $500-$6,000 to apply toward supplies, equipment, and travel expenses related to their research goals. Visit Student Research Grants to read about the wide variety of research projects funded in past years. The call for this annual award is released at the beginning of the UCLA Fall quarter. Multiple applicants may be awarded funds each year. Awardees are given approximately one year to spend their funds.
