The Tonolli Fund of SIL was created in 1985 through a bequest from Vittorio and Livia Tonolli, well known limnologists at the Istituto Italiano di Idrobiologia in Pallanza, Italy.
The objectives of the Vittorio Tonolli Memorial Fund are to perpetuate the memory of Vittorio Tonolli by providing assistance to young limnologists of developing countries for acquisition of limnological experience.
Awards from the Tonolli Fund generally are in the amount of $500 to $2,000 for a period of one year (recipients can also apply again for support in the following year).
The awards committee for the Tonolli Fund will emphasize research and graduate education in the field of limnology.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Eligible applicants are young limnologists of developing countries.
- In recent years, the fund has primarily been for support of students who are taking post-graduate degrees (MS, MSc, PhD) in the field of limnology.
- The committee would also consider, however, the possibility of research support for young limnologists who have just received an advanced degree and are in need of funds to support research, or of local limnological projects involving more than one limnologist.
- While there is some overlap between disciplines, the Tonolli Fund committee does not place the highest priority on research that is primarily oriented toward aquaculture or fisheries.
- Subjects of highest priority for the Tonolli Fund include the following:
- cycling (biogeochemistry) of carbon, key nutrients, or other elements known to be important to inland waters;
- studies of the production of either plant, animal, or microbial biomass and the factors that regulate production;
- studies of community composition, biodiversity, or factors that regulate these attributes of inland waters;
- analytical or comparative studies of physical, chemical, or biotic processes in streams, rivers, or wetlands.
- The Tonolli Fund cannot be used for international travel or non-research expenses.
