Objective:

  • Select the recipients of small grants from the John W. Marr Fund and the Myrna P. Steinkamp Memorial Fund.

Your contribution to the Colorado Native Plant Society John W. Marr and Myrna P. Steinkamp funds supports research projects in plant biology.  These separate funds honor the late Dr. John Marr, Professor at the University of Colorado and first President of the Colorado Native Plant Society, and Myrna Steinkamp, a founding member of the Colorado Native Plant Society who worked on behalf of the Society for many years in a variety of capacities. 

Both funds were established to support field and laboratory research on the biology and natural history of Colorado native plants.

The Marr Fund supports research on the biology of Colorado native plants and plant communities.

The Steinkamp Fund supports research on the biology of Colorado rare native plants.

Thanks to the generous contributions of many members and supporters, a total of approximately $3,000 each year is available for grants.  Your donation to these funds is encouraged and welcomed.  Please make your check to the Colorado Native Plant Society, designate the fund(s) to which you are donating and mail to:

The John W. Marr and Myrna P. Steinkamp Funds

The Colorado Native Plant Society supports research projects in plant biology from the John W. Marr and Myrna P. Steinkamp funds.  These separate funds honor the late Dr. John Marr, Professor at the University of Colorado and the first President of the CONPS, and Myrna Steinkamp, a founding member of CONPS who worked on behalf of the Society for many years in a variety of capacities.  Both funds were established to support research on the biology and natural history of Colorado native plants by means of small grants. The Steinkamp Fund targets rare species and those of conservation concern.  Both field and laboratory studies are eligible for funding.  Thanks to the generous contributions of many members and supporters, a total of nearly $3,000 is available, although individual awards will not exceed $1,000.  Recipients of the awards must agree to summarize their studies for publication in Aquilegia.
