Past Grantees

I couldn’t begin to thank the Jurassic Foundation enough for the support it provided while I was a graduate student. Had I not received those grants, my dissertation would have been of dramatically lesser quality and substance and all the research I’ve been conducting on theropod herbivory might not have materialized.” – Lindsay E. Zanno, Ph.D., Director, Paleontology & Geology Research Laboratory, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh, USA; JF grantee Spring 2003, Spring 2005, Fall 2006
