The Australian Flora Foundation was established in 1981 with the aim of fostering scientific research on the biology and cultivation of Australian plants. It was thought that by encouraging research, a greater awareness of the value of the Australian flora would be developed resulting in explicit measures for their conservation and utilisation.
Grants are available for projects, which commence from December 2020. The Foundation expects to support between two and four projects at $5,000 - $15,000/year each in 2021 with possible extension into 2022. Typically, projects are funded up to $10,000 per annum for two years or up to $15,000 for one year.
The Australian Flora Foundation will consider all relevant applications, with special interest in the following categories:
- conservation of Australian plant diversity, particularly where there are threats from climate change;
- the cultivation of Australian plants, to ensure their survival and reduce the threat to native ecosystems;
- rare and endangered plants.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Applications for grants to support original scientific projects on the biology and cultivation of Australian plants are invited from research workers in Australia.
- All applications on rare and endangered plants should indicate how the research relates to the known management plan for the species.
- Projects must be scientifically sound and aim to provide outcomes within the period of the grant.
- Applicants must be suitably qualified or identify a qualified project supervisor.
- Just one principal investigator.
- The Foundation does not fund projects that are for conference travel, publications, research on orchids, or taxonomy.
- It gives a low priority to flora surveys per se or studies of marine plants.
