Description:

Request a Grant Writer

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.

GrantWatch ID#: 178834

Estimated Size of Grant:

Award amounts vary; the maximum is $15,000.

Term of Contract:

All Kaplan Awards are granted for one year, but renewals for subsequent years may be requested. Funding for subsequent years will be decided based on the progress and results reported for the first year’s activities and is not guaranteed.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must be post-graduate students pursuing a higher degree (MSc., PhD or equivalent). Successful candidates will demonstrate outstanding academic credentials and conservation experience, field experience that has prepared them to undertake the proposed work, and a history of publishing work in peer-reviewed journals and/or ‘soft’ publications such as reports, magazine articles, web sites, etc.

The Kaplan Graduate Awards supports wild cat conservation and research projects in all areas of the world where wild cats are found. Although work on all wild cat species is considered, preference is given to species that are endangered, threatened or vulnerable on - in order of priority - a global, regional, or local scale. Applications for work on species that do not meet these criteria will have a stronger chance of approval if they can demonstrate that their results can be applied to other species or other areas with greater conservation outcomes. In addition, sites with high conservation significance will be given priority.

Panthera will not fund salaries for core administrative and management personnel.

Panthera will not consider large requests for expensive first world university tuition, except in exceptional cases where the applicants are nationals from developing countries and provide convincing rationales that the institutions will provide critical graduate training that is not available in their home country.

Panthera does not support conferences, travel to scientific meetings, legal actions, overhead costs, academic exchanges, or captive breeding.
