The Conservation Leadership Award is available to CLP project teams that have received both Future Conservationist Awards and Conservation Follow-up awards.
CLP is now accepting applications from previous CLP grantees to support Conservation Leadership projects in low and middle income countries. Grants are up to $50,000 to undertake complex conservation projects that connect previous work and typically focus on creating enduring systems to ensure conservation outcomes in the long-term, for example creating a new, self-supporting NGO. Applications for Leadership Awards will only be considered once a full final report, financial report and evaluation form have been submitted for the CLP Follow-up project.
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.
Award winners should be high potential early to mid-career conservationists, who through training and experience are now able to build the capacity of others. Projects should be sustainable and effective, increasing the viability of threatened populations and influencing national policy.
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!
