The Conservation Leadership Award is available to CLP project teams that have received both Future Conservationist Awards and Conservation Follow-Up awards.
Please be aware that the CLP application cycle for 2018 grants is delayed. We cannot guarantee that the same species and countries as last year will be eligible. In order to hear when the call for applications is out and about other funding opportunities, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and subscribe to our newsletter. Thank you!
Grants are up to $40,000, with coaching support, 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.
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.
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.
