2019 STUDENT GRANT FOR NATURE BASED STUDIES

2019 STUDENT GRANT FOR NATURE BASED STUDIES

Nature Regina is again making a Conservation Grant of up to $1500 available for student projects that contribute to the conservation of nature and biological diversity.
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 in and around Regina or 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, which is made available each year, is targeted at students who need financial assistance and, on occasion, other kinds of help from naturalists, to carry out their nature based projects. Projects that further the understanding of ecological relationships in the natural environment in Southern Saskatchewan 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 end product(s) of the project such as a completion report or thesis
  • Expected use for the results, (such as contributing to ongoing research, resource management planning or regulatory decisions)
  • Expected use of the grant funds, (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:
Applications received after February 28, 2019 may not be eligible for funding in the current year. Applicants who received a grant in previous years are still eligible to receive the 2019 Conservation Grant.
