The mission of the Herb Society of America is to promote the knowledge and use of herbs through educational programs, research, and sharing of the experience of its members with the broader community.
As part of this mission, HSA will award grants of up to $5,000 for research on the horticultural, scientific, and/or social use of herbs throughout history. The research must define “herb” as something historically useful for flavoring, medicine, ornament, economic, industrial, and/or cosmetic purposes. The grant is intended to support small, self-contained research projects over a short-period of time. Allowable costs include compensation for investigators, professional and technical assistance, research supplies and materials, and costs for computer time.
Applicants may be a student, professional, or amateur hobbyist.
See the Herb Societys website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
