About this funder:
Neotropical Grassland Conservancy
The Neotropical Grassland Conservancy donates equipment and money to local scientists and direct conservation projects and educational programs. Our philosophy promotes cost-effective ways to impact conservation of grasslands, empowers local people and launches careers, and creates a valuable network of promising scientists and students.We are dedicated to:
- conservation - promoting the conservation of savannas, gallery forests, wetlands, and associated ecosystems in Central and South America, and
- collaboration - fostering mutually beneficial collaboration between North American and Central and South American scientists and institutions by providing shared scientific and educational opportunities.
Student Grant Program
The Student Grant Program (SGP) was designed in response to feedback from Venezuelan professors. Graduate student research projects are often hindered by lack of funds for basic needs such as transportation, lodging, meals and consumable field supplies.
Applications are reviewed by members of the SGP committee and two outside reviewers. Award decisions are based on the student’s demonstrated commitment to conservation, feasibility and merit of the proposed project, and how closely the project meets NGC’s mission
Awards are distributed as a single allotment of $1,000 USD. We ask that awardees provide bank name, address and routing numbers.
Awardees are required to provide the NGC with a year-end report summarizing project results and describing how funds were used. Following submission of this report, students are eligible for additional funding.
Christopher Miller Outstanding Student Award
This award of $500 is given annually to an outstanding Student Grant winner. After completing funded projects, students submit a final report. NGC staff will choose several promising students based on final reports, and the NGC Board will select a winner at its annual board meeting.
