The Society for Conservation Biology, Marine Section Small Grants Program application deadline has been extended! The program provides small grants ($500 – 700 USD) to marine conservation research projects in areas of acute need, especially for research in the developing world, or for those organizations with limited access to conservation funding. Applications are being accepted now from any Marine Section SCB member. The extended application deadline is Nov. 4th, 2016.
If you are not a member yet, not to worry, joining is simple! First, you become a member of SCB (Society membership available at http://conbio.org/membership/become-a-member). Then, log in to the member area, and in the vertical bar on the right-hand side of the webpage under “My Society Involvement”, click “Join a Section”. Next, choose Marine! (Note: SCB members may join up to two sections).
Please apply, and share the news of the program and funding availability with friends and colleagues. To apply, visit: http://birenheide.com/scbmarinegrants/index.php
