Earthwatch, a private, nonprofit organization that fosters scholarly research by offering capital, labor and greater visibility to the scientific community, will award over 140 grants of $10,000 to $100,000 in 1991. Funds come primarily from contributions of volunteers selected from Earthwatch's 75,000 members, who want to learn about scientific problems and share in solving them. The Center for Field Research receives, reviews and recommends research proposals for Earthwatch support.
