Deadline: | Fondation Segré Conservation Action Fund 2024
Calls for proposals are now open for Conservation Action Grants and Research Support Grants for projects targeting globally threatened ungulate species.
Maximum grant size for is EUR 50,000 for Conservation Action Grants and EUR 7,000 for Research Support Grants, for a maximum duration of 12 months.
Who do we collaborate with?
IUCN Save Our Species works with Civil Society Organisations and government agencies, and offers three types of grants:
- Threatened Species Grants are awarded under each of our initiatives through periodic Calls for Proposals. These are awarded to projects that have a programmatic approach to addressing existing conservation threats.
- Rapid Action Grants are awarded through an open-ended Call for Proposals available to projects responding to emergencies. They are awarded to shorter project (maximum 12 months) and are designed to enable immediate responses to new and emerging threats.
- Research Support Grants are awarded to young and early scientists in their research to improve the knowledge on threatened species and their ecosystems. Note: Research Support Grants are currently only available under the Fondation Segré Conservation Action Fund.
This five-year initiative will run until 2026 and is funded by Fondation Segré through IUCN Save Our Species. The Fund will focus on threatened species and their habitats across Asia, the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, and the Middle East. This initiative will support young and early researchers as well as conservation projects for all animal species considered as threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, including terrestrial, freshwater and marine species.
Types of Segré Conservation Action Grants
Two different types of grants will be available through the Fund. Conservation Action Grants will support on-the-ground conservation action to improve the status of threatened animal species and their habitats. Research Support Grants will in turn support young and early scientists in their research to improve the knowledge on species and their role in natural ecosystems. These grants intend to provide budding researchers the opportunity to develop into world-class conservationists.
The maximum grant size for Conservation Action Grants will be EUR 50’000 per grant with a maximum duration of 12 months, and the maximum grant size for Research Support Grants will be EUR 7’000 for a maximum duration of 12 months.
