- Eligible projects must:
- Have a clear conservation value
- Be based in New Zealand or in a developing country (although applicants can be based anywhere in the world)
- Projects that benefit invertebrate conservation in New Zealand or any developing country are eligible provided they meet the criteria outlined in our FAQs.
- The application must represent a minimum of 25% of the project's overall budget. This means that the maximum budget a project applying for a Category 3 grant can be is $20,000.
- Project applications will score more highly during the selection process if they:
- Are likely to have a direct conservation impact
- Are collaborative and involve a local conservation organisation
- Are logistically feasible, and fiscally and scientifically sound
- General items not considered eligible:
- Projects based in non-developing countries (except New Zealand)
- Pure research (i.e. research projects must demonstrate applied benefit to conservation and/or target an identified conservation need)
- A conference, seminar, workshop or meeting
- Specific examples of items not eligible within an application:
- Thesis production costs
- Retrospective costs
- Prize money
- Entertainment costs
- Social or networking functions
- Fundraising or general income-growth purposes
- Debt servicing or financial costs
- Office equipment (unless an essential element in completing field work)
- Internships and volunteer programmes (unless benefiting an identified conservation need.)
- We have noticed a particularly high number of applications with a very similar format of providing community workshops, meetings and /or events as a mechanism to promote conservation. While we remain open to this approach, generally these applications will not be considered unless:
- They are providing a targeted approach to a specific issue.
- Results are able to be measured.
- And have the support of a known NGO.
- Many applications are rejected due to inaccurate or too brief budgets.
- We recommend you put time into properly preparing your budgets including detailed breakdown of costs and if appropriate copies of quotes.
- It also helps if you have checked your figures – we believe the quality and accuracy of an application will be reflected in the delivery of a project.
