The Conservation Follow-Up Award is available to teams of high potential early career conservationists. Grants of up to $20,000 and coaching 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 Award projects should inform national action plans and international priority setting.
In 2015, CLP funding is available to teams conducting projects in the following countries:
Algeria, Angola, Egypt, Mozambique, South Africa
Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey
Latin America & Caribbean
Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico
Asia & Pacific
China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam

As part of the award, one representative from each award winning team will be invited to participate in an international training course presented by CLP. The course will include modules to develop leadership, project management, education, facilitation and communication skills. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to share their own experiences and build a global network.
