The NAI and the American Philosophical Society (APS), the oldest learned society in North America and the sponsor of Lewis and Clarks Corps of Discovery in 1804, are partners in the Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research in Astrobiology. This program provides opportunities for the continued exploration of the world around us through research grants in support of astrobiological field studiesencouraging the best young scientists to engage in the exploration vision of NASA. This year, six Lewis and Clark Field Scholars were jointly selected by the NAI and APS. Their projects span the breadth of astrobiology research and the globe taking them this summer to locales such as Iceland, Greenland, Utah, and the Andes.
