Overview:

Primate Conservation, Incorporated (PCI) is a not-for-profit foundation founded to fund field research that supports conservation programs for wild populations of primates.  Priority will be given to projects that study, in their natural habitat, the least known and most endangered species. The intent is to provide support for original research that can be used to formulate and to implement conservation plans for the species studied. 

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

Eligibility:

  • Primate Conservation, Inc. will grant seed monies or provide matching grants for graduate students, qualified conservationists and primatologists to study rare and endangered primates and their conservation in their natural habitat.
  • All appropriate projects will be considered, but the regions of current interest are Asia and West Africa.
  • The grants are given for field work or conservation.

Preferences:

  • The involvement of citizens from the country in which the primates are found will be a plus. 

Ineligibility:

  • We do not support conferences, travel to scientific meetings, legal actions, tuitions or salaries at institutions, and overhead costs.
  • Due to the small amount of monies (under $5,000) to be disbursed by our organization, and due to the obvious need for conservation of many species of primates in their native environment, the Directors feel that no monies should be taken for administration or overhead by the college, university or not for profit organization through which the grant is administered.
