  • Scholarship Description
  • The Herb Society of America, Inc. (HSA) offers annual research grants to students, professionals, and individuals engaged in research on the horticultural, scientific, and/or social applications or use of herbs throughout history, based on the HSA definition of a herb. The defining characteristic for herbs is their usefulness, past or present, including their value for flavoring, medicine, ornament, economic, industrial, or cosmetic purposes.

    The HSA Research Grant is intended to support small, self-contained research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time.

    Allowable costs include:
    -Compensation for investigators
    -Professional and technical assistance
    -Research supplies and materials
    -Costs of computer time

    Non-allowable costs include:
    -Purchase or maintenance of durable equipment including but not limited to computer, laboratory or office equipment
    -Expenses related to tuition, textbooks, or conference attendance
    -Private garden development
    -Travel to and/or from research site(s)

    Applications which include indirect costs will not be considered by the committee. While it is not anticipated that a HSA Research Grant will completely fund a project, there should be no duplication or overlap of funding for specific budget items.
