Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International scientists, conservationists, and educators who are within five years of receiving their degree for projects on aquatic wildlife. A preliminary application is required prior to the submission of the full proposal. Funding is intended to support innovative start-up projects on marine chondrichthyan species (skates, rays, sharks, sawfishes, and chimaeras).

Aimed at original and innovative start-up projects, the grant presents early career scientists, conservationists or educators with an opportunity to prove themselves. It targets local projects conducted by local project leaders. Whether or not the project is part of a larger endeavour, SOSF Small Grants are for specific and finite projects. Only projects concerned with marine chondrichthyan species (sharks, rays, skates, sawfishes and chimaeras) will be considered.

A special call is aimed at supporting projects that promote the recovery of sawfishes, wedgefish, and guitarfish. However, any chondrichthyan projects are welcomed.

The SOSF will consider small grant applications that, inter alia, aim to undertake the preliminary investigations necessary before a larger, longer-term project can be developed.

The costs of short-term employees or the short-term extra costs of an individual’s participation in a project may, however, be eligible. Specialist services (e.g. film editing, laboratory testing, library facilities) may also be eligible.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The grant funds early career scientists, conservationists, or educators (within five years of a degree being awarded).

Financial Restrictions:

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline: Grant applications must be submitted through the SOSF website no later than 31 July 2020 (stage I) and 30 September 2020 (stage 2) at 18:00 CET (Central European Time).

The Small Grant application process consists of a two-stage online application: Stage I involves completing a very short online form. Stage II, by invitation only based on the Stage I application, will involve the completion of a longer and more detailed online form.

Stage I Applications will be reviewed during August 2020. Successful applicants will be invited to submit a stage II application (deadline September 30, 2020). Stage II Applications will be reviewed during the last quarter of 2020, and recommendations forwarded to the next Foundation Board meeting. The final decision on successful applications should be available during the first quarter of 2021.

Only one application will be accepted from any one applicant.

Successful applicants for small project grants, including scoping projects, are not eligible to submit a Small Grant application the following year
