Conservation Workshop Grants

 UPDATE: The Conservation Workshop Grant application is now OPEN for 2014.

OVERVIEW

Conservation Workshop Grants fund organizations to train communities, stakeholders, park guards, and others on local and regional conservation issues. These grants support training workshops with a strong hands-on learning component that will build capacity for people living in WWF priority places in select countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Local organizations from select WWF-US priority countries must meet all of the eligibility criteria to be considered for a grant.

Organizations may request up to $7,500 for the proposed training.
