Public Lecture Series with Dan Stone - "The Food Explorer" - Monday, December 17

The Food Explorers: The Botanists Who Roamed the Planet To Find Our Everyday Foods - In the nineteenth century, American meals were about subsistence, not enjoyment. But as a new century approached, appetites broadened, and David Fairchild, a young botanist with an insatiable lust to explore and experience the world, set out in search of foods that would enrich the American farmer and enchant the American eater.

The Rolex Explorers Club Grants

The Explorers Club and Rolex share a common vision – supporting and fostering emerging young explorers. As a result of this shared vision, we are pleased to announce the third installment of The Rolex Explorers Club Grants program. The Rolex Explorers Club Grants will send extraordinary young explorers into the field and promote the significant role that exploration plays in addressing cutting-edge scientific questions, understanding our environment and the world we live in, and learning more about our history. In 2019 up to five $10,000 grants will be awarded to young explorers.

This program is open to all field science disciplines. Proposals must contain a field science exploration component and address a novel scientific, environmental, or historic question. In addition to demonstrating a spirit of exploration, candidates must put forward a project or research proposal that has a clear scientific rationale, represents original work, and has the potential for significant impact or new understanding. Fieldwork must be completed by February 14, 2020.
