The CLP has been helping young conservationists to achieve their goals and move into positions of influence within the conservation sector for more than 25 years. We are currently soliciting applications for 2013 Conservation Awards. These awards are aimed at early-career conservationists (less than 5 years professional experience in the conservation sector). Successful applicants will: 1.) develop the knowledge, skills and abilities of team members; 2.) implement a focused, high-priority conservation project combining research and action; and 3.) contribute to the long-term success of local conservation efforts.
This year’s awards include:
Future Conservationist Awards (up to US $15,000 each)
Conservation Follow-up Awards (up to US $25,000 each) – available only to previous CLP Future Conservationist Award winners
Conservation Leadership Awards (up to US $50,000 each) – available only to previous CLP Follow-up Award winners
How to Apply:
Take our Eligibility Quiz now to learn if your project fits our award criteria.
Follow the link above for the appropriate award. If you have never received support from the CLP, you can apply for a Future Conservationist Award; if you have already received this award, you can apply for a Follow-up Award; if you have received both these awards, you can apply for a Leadership Award.
The award deadline is 9th November 2012 for all award types.
Applications must be submitted online. However, we recommend that you complete the application offline using the downloadable word document and then copy and paste the information to the online form.
Sign up to the CLP enewsletter and CLP Facebook page to be kept informed of other program activities.
All teams that make it through the first round of reviews will receive feedback on their proposal. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact a member of the CLP team more than two weeks before the application deadline for advice on eligibility, project concept, methods and activities. The CLP can also put teams in touch with local partner offices or other experts who can provide additional advice.
A representative from each award-winning team will be invited to attend an international training event organized by the CLP to share ideas, develop skills and knowledge and network with their peers. Additionally, winning teams are able to network with experts from within each of the partner organizations and past winners. CLP team members are available to help with project implementation, including guidance required during the planning and team training stages.
