*Ecological Knowledge Research Fellowship:* $750, annual competition.
Deadline, October 15.  Applicants must be members of the Society and active
students in a university graduate program in a field related to
ethnobiology to be considered. This award is to support study of
ethnobiology in traditional societies including folk foods, artisanship,
wildlife knowledge, medicinal knowledge, craft-making, music, and related
areas of ecological knowledge.  Application requires a research proposal of
1500 words or less with a short, line-item budget, official university
