The McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity (MGCL) at the Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH), University of Florida (UF), periodically accepts applications from prospective students interested in earning a Master’s or Ph.D. degree from the Department of Biology, Entomology and Nematology Department, or other appropriate UF department, with a research emphasis on butterflies and moths. Our next round of funding is likely to be in the Fall of 2025 for students expecting to start their degree program in Fall 2026. Other sources of funding may be available through UF departments, from grants, or other sources, so prospective students should contact a potential supervisor at the McGuire Center if they are interested in inquiring about graduate degree programs in Lepidoptera research.
