The Florida Invasive Species Council solicits grant proposals for non-native invasive plant education and outreach projects in Florida each fall.
The intent of these grants is to provide funding to organizations or individuals who wish to educate Floridians about non-native invasive plants and their impacts on the environment and economy of Florida.
Proposals are accepted from individuals, public or private nonprofit organizations, and academic institutions.
Grant recipients are announced each spring at FISC's annual Symposium. Grant recipients are expected to present their project at the FISC symposium as an oral presentation or a poster, or submit a manuscript for publication with FISC, as part of the fulfillment requirements.
This grant program was named in honor of Kathy Craddock Burks.
