Awards and Funding Opportunities
The Lily Glidden Award (available to undergraduates and graduate students)
With the Lily Glidden Award, Lily's family and friends honor her memory and carry on her spirit of curiosity, never-ending adventure, irreverent tolerance of the rules, determination to surmount all obstacles, and above all, the wonder and joy she took at immersing herself in and learning about the natural world. Her life was about finding and seizing opportunities to turn her dreams to realities, and she would wish to help others do the same.
