Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve Student Research Grants
The goal of the student research grant program is to promote undergraduate and graduate student research projects on the BCCER. Awards up to $3,000 will assist students with project costs, equipment, transportation, printing, and other expenses directly related to the project. The student must have a faculty advisor assisting with the design, development, and implementation of the project. All projects must conform to the BCCER’s research rules and guidelines which may be found on the BCCER website. The funds for this program are generated through donations from the Chico community. The community donates because they believe in our mission and our ability to maintain the highest ethical standards.
