Share our Call for Applications with your colleagues and keep up to date with the awards process via the CLP Facebook page!
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. Every year we put out a call for funding applications for 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.
- 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
Anyone interested in applying for a CLP award should read our Frequently Asked Questions document
All teams that make it through the first round of reviews 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 is 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.
