The Conservation Follow-up Award is available to CLP project teams that have received a Future Conservationist Award.
** Update: CLP Awards site is now live!**
CLP is now accepting applications via our online awards site from previous CLP grantees to support Follow-up projects in low and middle income countries. All funding applications must be submitted online using this site by 11:59 PM GMT – Sunday, 24 November 2019.
Proposals from previous CLP grantees applying for a Follow-up award will only be considered if a logical framework has already been reviewed by CLP (October) and previous project reporting is up to date.
We recommend that teams develop their proposals using the Word template provided and then copy and paste data into the application site. Please ensure that you select the correct awards category when you start your application. Applicants who have not previously been funded by CLP can only apply for a Future Conservationist Award. Please do not access the site using Internet Explorer. If you have any problems whilst making your online application, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Once submitted, the application will be reviewed by the CLP Management team who will check that the project and team are eligible for funding. If your application is eligible, it will be reviewed by conservation experts who will rate your application based on feasibility, contribution to conservation and capacity development of the teams. Funding decisions will be made in March 2020 by the CLP Award Selection Committee and winners will be announced in April 2020.
About the Follow-up Awards
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.
As with the Future Conservationist Award, results and data from Conservation Follow-up projects should inform national action plans and international priority setting.
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.
