Overview:

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.

The Student Grant Program (SGP) was designed in response to graduate student research projects that are often hindered by lack of funds for basic needs such as transportation, lodging, meals and consumable field supplies. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Latin American students enrolled in a M.S. or Ph.D. program in a US or South American university.
  • 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 of conservation and collaboration (see above).
