The Primate Conservation, Incorporated (PCI) has announced a grant program to fund field research that supports conservation programs for wild populations of primates.
Priority will be given to projects that study, in their natural habitat, the least known and most endangered species. The involvement of citizens from the country in which the primates are found will be a plus. The intent is to provide support for original research that can be used to formulate and to implement conservation plans for the species studied.
Grants have averaged approximately $2,500, with a maximum grant of $5,000.
- Primate Conservation, Inc. will grant seed monies or provide matching grants for graduate students, qualified conservationists and primatologists to study rare and endangered primates and their conservation in their natural habitat.
- PCI does not support conferences, travel to scientific meetings, legal actions, tuitions or salaries at institutions, and overhead costs.
- Proposals are evaluated on competitive basis.
- Applications are screened by outside reviewers and the Board of Directors of PCI.
- All appropriate projects will be considered, but the regions of current interest are Asia and West Africa.
