2016 Small Grant – call for applications

9th June 2015

The Save Our Seas Foundation invites applications for small projects for our Small Grants during the funding period of 2016.

This grant is designed for short (12- to 18-month) and small (grants average 5,000 USD) projects dedicated to early career scientists (within five years of a degree being awarded). Aimed at original and innovative start-up projects, the grant presents early career scientists, conservationists or educators with an opportunity to prove themselves. It targets local projects conducted by local project leaders. Whether or not the project is part of a larger project, SOSF Small Grants are for specific and finite projects.

PDF copies of the questions and the application guidelines are available, but please keep in mind that all applications must be submitted via the online form.

The deadline for applications is 31 July 2015.

Please be sure to read the funding guidelines carefully.
