The Ravi Sankaran Fellowship Program fundsfor a conservation research or implementation project within India.
The Program will fund up to 5 recipients to carry out an initial project of up to 1 yr that is expected to lead to a longer-term conservation science and/or implementation project. Thus, this program provides “seed money” for what may ordinarily be viewed as an unconventional or risky project.
Recipients of an initial Small Grant may apply for follow-up funding. When doing so, they must demonstrate the success of the pilot project and show how subsequent funding is essential to bring out the conservation benefits of the project. . Where appropriate, applicants for a small grant are encouraged to consider and include the potential role that local communities can play in conservation.
