Conservation Grant Submission
The Conservation Working Party administers the PSGB Conservation Grants. These are awards, typically not exceeding £1000, to assist research of benefit to primate conservation and primate conservation education. The remit is very broad and although the financial value of the grants is quite small it should be remembered that approval from the PSGB is invaluable when applying for money from other sources. Grants are given only to members of PSGB and to non-human primate range state nationals.
Candidates should not apply to more than one Working Party for funds for the same project or in any one year, but decide which best represents their chosen topic. For further clarification please see the guidance notes and, if unsure, contact the relevant Convenor(s) for advice prior to submitting a proposal.
The grant deadline is 28 February each year and all PSGB members are eligible to apply, as are people from primate habitat countries who are sponsored by a PSGB member or who have contacted the Convenor for advice and have been advised that they are eligible.
All applications should be written in English and submitted directly to the Convenor (email@example.com). PLEASE EMAIL ALL DOCUMENTS (applications and references) DIRECTLY TO THE CONVENOR. References are CONFIDENTIAL and should be submitted and uploaded directly by the referee, NOT the applicant. All emails will normally be acknowledged promptly. Please contact the Convenor again if your application or reference has not been acknowledged within 5 days.
Applicants are advised to read the Code of Best Practices for Field Primatology by the International Primatological Society if they are planning to undertake field work.
