Navigating federal agencies for research and funding opportunities in ecology can be complex, especially for early career investigators. Representatives from multiple federal agencies and organizations involved with ecological research along with ESA's Early Career Ecologists Section will share information about research funding, opportunities, and/or fellowships at their institutions. At this session, we will strive for representation from BLM, DOD, DOE, EPA, NASA, NOAA, NSF, USDA, USFS, USGS, and the Smithsonian Institution. After a brief introduction about each organization present, representatives will meet with workshop participants in small groups to answer questions about their programs.
