IAS launches funding campaign for the Whitaker Award
Bill McKnight, Editor of Special Publications for IAS, is kickstarting a funding campaign to create a zoology-based competitive grant named after Indiana’s most well-renown mammologists, John O. Whitaker, Jr. This grant, named the John Whitaker Award, will be administered by the Biodiversity and Natural Areas Committee of the IAS to deserving zoology-based researchers, much like the Winona Welch grant is currently awarded to botanists in the state. To fund this award, we are requesting tax-deductible contributions to build the John Whitaker Award endowment. More information available here.
