Help Fund Scholarships For Years To Come
Since 1999, the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) has given scholarships to graduate students whose research is likely to make a positive impact on the local botany and ecology. CNPS uses these scholarships to encourage students to choose thesis topics that relate to our local flora. These scholarships help foster a new generation of scientists interested in preserving what is left of Santa Clara and San Mateo County’s plants, butterflies, and birds.
