News from National: Time to Apply for Norman Singer Grants

Via Carol Eichler, chair:

National NARGS is now soliciting applicants for the coming year for Norman Singer grants. The application deadline is April 1, 2008 so the Committee review and decision can be made before the NARGS Annual Meeting, June 12-15, 2008. Applications should be sent electronically to Phyllis Gustafson

In past years, NARGS National has funded rock garden projects at botanic gardens, expeditions in search of seed suitable for rock garden culture, internships requested by botanic gardens, and help with publications pertinent to alpine plants. The funds are not unlimited - most grants are in the range of $1,500 to a high of $5,000. The "Guidelines" can be found on the NARGS website here:
