Worldwide Grants from the People’s Trust for Endangered Species

From the People’s Trust for Endangered Species website

The Trust has awarded grants to scientific researchers and conservationists for many years for work that is aimed at the preservation of endangered species, either through research or practical field work. Please take a look at the project examples on the website.

They only accept grant requests from applicants already working and established in either the UK, UK overseas territories or any country NOT classified by the World Bank as high-income. Please go to the World Bank web page to check if your country applies.

They are accepting final applications for conservation and research work on IUCN classified species. The grants system has been revised and we are currently offering the following types of grant:

worldwide small grants programme

The worldwide small grants programme offers a number of small grants for short-term conservation and research projects. The programme offers grants between £2,000 and £8,000 for projects of up to two years duration. Most grants will not exceed £5,000. These competitive grants are from a limited central fund and are awarded twice yearly. It is hoped that these grants will enable innovative work and discreet projects to be carried out. The next deadline will be Friday 10th February 2012 and will be assessed at a meeting in April – date to be confirmed. All applications will be acknowledged within two weeks of being received.
