The Mildred E. Mathias Graduate Student Research Grant Program funds research at the National Reserve System (NRS). Graduate students from all University of California campuses pursuing any discipline are eligible. Providing up to $3,000 each, the grants encourage students to establish independent research projects at reserves. Students gain experience submitting research proposals, writing progress reports, and managing a research budget. Awardees are invited to present their findings at the biennial Mathias Graduate Student Research Grant Symposium.

The program is named for UC Los Angeles botanist and professor Mildred E. Mathias, one of the founders of the NRS. Since its inception in 1988, more than 400 UC students have received nearly $800,000 in Mathias Grant funding.
