Rates for Research and Education

Station fees include room and board as well as unlimited access to shared lab and office space, the field, paths, observation platforms, libraries, collections, and Wi-Fi connection. Other expenses, which are not covered in the station fees, are charged separately. These expenses include, but are not limited to, charges for transportation, exclusive use of office or lab space, building of structures for field projects, use of boats or vehicles, phone charges, and staff support. Here is a comprehensive list of additional services we provide and their cost. All prices are all in U.S. dollars and are subject to change.

We will strive to update this information periodically but, when in doubt or if you need certainty of current prices, please contact the people listed in these documents. During your budget preparation, we advise that you to discuss your budget with the station director and make sure all potential expenses are covered.

Please be aware that we also charge a service fee for some of these expenses. An explanation of service fees and how they are calculated is here.

The fees below are valid from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019 and are in U.S. Dollars.

Standard rates before application of aid: overnight $81.00, day visit $41.00.

These amounts are valid for all the OTS Research Stations. Research visits of up to thirty days qualify for short-term aid; those over thirty days receive long-term aid.
