Research Scholarships

We fund artist participation in scientific research related to biodiversity studies and wildlife conservation. Scholarship amounts vary from $150 to $3500 depending on the need. We accept applications on a rolling basis. To apply, please fill out our Scholarship Application Form.

Examples include conference fees, art supplies, local travel either for independent study or to shadow a scientist in the field or in the lab, and, publication costs for printed materials designed to improve science literacy and science communication.



During the summer 2019, Creature Conserve supported four research scholars, all currently students at the Rhode Island School of Design, Megan Brief, Ava Handley, Eleanor Olson, and Alex Pourvali. Each worked on their art/sci research projects independently and the group met with Creature Conserve Board members and artist advisors several times to share ideas and offer feedback.
