Student Grants in Botany

The Otero Chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico often supports projects involved with the native plants of our state through grants to university students in the botanical or natural resources fields at New Mexico State University and New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology. All grant monies have been distributed at this time but we will announce the next funding cycle as soon as we know it!
