The mission of the Herb Society of America is to promote the knowledge and use of herbs through educational programs, research, and sharing of experiences of its members with the larger community.
As part of this mission, HSA will award grants of up to $5,000 in support of research on the horticultural, scientific, and/or social use of herbs throughout history. Supported research must define "herb" as something historically useful for flavoring, medicinal, ornamental, economic, industrial, 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.
See the Herb Society website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
