The World Wood Day Foundation (WWDF) is now accepting applications for research grants. Scholars and graduate students with a focus on “wood and culture” in ongoing projects as well as new initiatives are encouraged to apply. The proposals will be evaluated on their originality and scholarly excellence by a group of professionals from various disciplines. The WWDF is an US-based nonprofit organization that dedicates to raise public awareness of wood as an eco-friendly material and its significant role in world history, inspires academic research and promotes responsible wood usage for a sustainable future. By carrying out its missions, the WWDF supports interdisciplinary and integral investigation for exploring how wood has played a prominent role in human life. “Wood and Culture” is a broad and encompassing theme that encourages a wide range of academic research.
