The School of Integrative Biology, with the generous support of its alumni and friends, offers several kinds of financial support for specific purposes:

Robert H. Davis Memorial Fund. This Fund was named in honor of Robert H Davis, an undergraduate student in Integrative Biology who was on track to graduate in May, 2008. His tragic death in February 2008 cut short what was clearly a promising career. This Fund was established by his family in his memory in order to provide support for undergraduate students to participate in undergraduate research, as Robert himself did.

Award: $1,500

Deadline: mid-spring

The award provides funds to support undergraduate or graduate student attendance and presentation of research results at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) or a meeting of another appropriate professional society.

Award: $750

Deadline: mid-spring
