The OSF grants committee received and evaluated fourteen proposals by applicants from fourteen countries
(Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Algeria, Tunisia, Pakistan, India, China,
USA, Brazil, and Argentina). Ten proposals listed below will be funded. They have been selected based on
the amount of data (images, specimen records, sounds, etc.) expected to be added to the Orthoptera Species
File. Also considered were the candidates’ expertise, if the proposal was related to a taxonomic research
project, and the budget.
