Foundation / Corporation
Grants of up to $15,000 to USA, Canada, and International biology students pursuing an MSc., Ph.D., or equivalent degree for felid conservation. Funding is intended for on-site conservation efforts focusing on wild species of cats, with a particular focus on threatened species. This funding program was created to help develop the next generation of wild cat biologists.
The program supports the conservation efforts of outstanding young biology graduate students working on wild felids in situ. Panthera welcomes applications for projects on all wild cat species in all regions.
The KAP will consider applications for both project and tuition costs. However, preference is given to projects requesting primarily field and research costs. Panthera will consider local salaries, per diems, and stipends for local field personnel only.
