Overview:

Skyrail Rainforest Foundation Student Funding 2020

The Skyrail Rainforest Foundation offers funding to support student research that enhances the protection of tropical rainforests through better understanding and sustainable practices.

Each year research students will be able to access up to $5,000 for PhD and masters projects and up to $2,000 for honours projects, Graduate Diploma in Research Methods projects and other Masters Coursework where there is a strong research component. 

The funding favours projects with a specific focus on the Impacts of climate change on upland and mountaintop flora, fauna and hydrology, Connectivity in fragmented rainforest landscapes and We encourage students to utilise multiple sources of evidence to assess long term changes to the condition of the rainforest. Research is encouraged that might also show the extent to which the area is meeting the need to protect the natural and cultural heritage conservation values. The outcome the SRF is looking for is research that provides prescriptions for management that highlights key and emerging issues that may identify the trend and condition of the area, identify areas for improvement and provide evidence based information that perhaps provides early warning of deterioration of conservation values of the area. 

Since inception, the foundation has provided more than $480,000 to research projects. 

Each year applications will be reviewed and assessed by the SRF's Public Fund Management Committee who are experts in education, conservation, environmental management and business.
