The Conservation Follow-up Award is available to CLP project teams that have received a Future Conservationist Award.
CLP is now accepting applications from previous CLP grantees to support Follow-up projects in low and middle income countries. Grants of up to $25,000 and support are available to teams addressing a conservation issue raised by recommendations in a project previously supported by CLP. Projects should be focused on direct conservation outputs, for example lobbying, awareness raising, education, training and monitoring.
Applications for Follow-up Awards will only be considered once a full final report, financial report and evaluation form have been submitted for the initial project. As with the Future Conservationist Award, results and data from Conservation Follow-up projects should inform national action plans and international priority setting.
A standard CLP Logical Framework a must be submitted to CLP by 18 October 2019. If the Logical Framework and Final Report are satisfactory, the team will be notified by 25 October 2019 and will be invited to submit a full proposal by the deadline 11:59 PM GMT – Sunday, 24 November 2019.
In addition to project funding, CLP will invite one member of each Award-winning team to our international training course where they will learn about a range of conservation management and leadership topics as well as build a network with other early-career conservationists. Our training course helps awardees deliver their CLP projects and has also been credited for furthering participants’ career progression. It is a rewarding and life-changing experience!
As part of the award, winning teams are able to access expertise from within each of the three conservation partner organizations and via our Alumni Network that includes past award winners. Programme staff members are also available to advise on project implementation, including guidance required during the planning and team training stages.
