Salt Lake City, Utah, August 25, 2020 – Scientific research provides us with the foundation of knowledge we rely on in order to understand honey bee health threats and address them.
Project Apis m. and the National Honey Board are requesting research proposals to support and enhance honey bee health. Proposals will be accepted between September 1, 2020 and September 30, 2020. Please visit www.ProjectApism.org/rfps to view the full RFP. PAm and NHB supported research projects can be explored in detail at the Bee Health Collective.
The Bee Health Collective website is an effort to gather and share content and credible information about honey bee health, scientific research, the beekeeping industry, and how these relate to agriculture, resource management and the food supply.
Initiated by Project Apis m. and the National Honey Board in 2019, the Bee Health Collective website serves as a 'one-stop-shop' for information about bee health in the United States.
With many thanks to the generosity of her friends and family, we are excited to announce that the Christi Heintz Memorial Scholarship Award will provide $20,000 to one master’s student doing research aligned with PAm’s mission.
This student will be someone who can also demonstrate their embodiment of Christi’s spirit of curiosity, collaboration, and fearlessness. Applicants will be asked to submit a 3-minute video to demonstrate those qualities as well as examples of innovation in their life and addressing their interest in Project Apis m. and bee health
The window to apply for this award will be open from August 15th until October 1st* 2020. Applicants are also encouraged to read Christi's full memorial here.
