About the CLP Future Conservationist Awards

Each worth $15,000, Future Conservationist Awards are granted to teams of early-career conservationists who are conducting high-priority projects focused on protecting species listed as Data Deficient, Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. Projects must take place in an eligible country, be led (or co-led) by a national of one of these countries, involve at least three people and last between three to 12 months. Please refer to the Guidelines for Applicants above for full details on the eligibility criteria and application process.
