2018 STUDENT GRANTS FOR NATURE BASED STUDIES
Nature Regina is again making a Conservation Grant of up to $1,500 available for
student projects that contribute to the conservation of nature and biological
Nature Regina, (NR), is a non-profit organization founded in 1933 that is committed to fostering awareness and appreciation of the natural ecological systems that sustain us both locally in and around Regina and more broadly throughout the prairie provinces.
NR members share an interest in exploring and learning about the natural world and seek to conserve our present and future natural environment.
The Conservation Grant is targeted at students who need financial assistance and possibly other assistance from naturalists, to carry out their nature based projects. Projects that further understanding of ecological relationships in the Regina or Southern Saskatchewan natural environment are preferred candidates for the grant.
We require a short proposal from each candidate that includes:
· The ecological need for the project
· A short description of the goals and objectives
· A brief general description of the methods and work plan
· Duration of the project
· A description of the expected use of the grant (living expenses, travel, acquisition of
equipment, support for assistants or other)
· Potential for combining with other funding sources
· Level of urgency for the financial support
Nature Regina requires that, upon completion of the project, the successful applicant will either make an oral presentation at one of the society’s monthly meetings or provide a full written report to Nature Regina.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS:
