Panthera: Inviting applications for The Kaplan Graduate Awards Program (KAP) to help develop the next generation of wild cat biologists.

Donor Name: Panthera
Funding name: The Kaplan Graduate Awards Program (KAP)

Funding brief: The Kaplan Graduate Awards Program (KAP) was created to help develop the next generation of wild cat biologists.

The program supports the conservation efforts of outstanding young biology graduate students working on wild felids in situ. They welcome applications for projects on all wild cat species in all regions.

Deadline: Letters of Interest (LOIs) are being accepted now until July 15th, 2017.

Funding details link:

Funding limit:  Award amounts vary; the maximum is $1 5,000.

Special Notes:
Species and location: The Kaplan Graduate Awards supports wild cat conservation and research projects in all areas of the world where wild cats are found. Although work on all wild cat species is considered, preference is given to species that are endangered, threatened or vulnerable on – in order of priority – a global, regional, or local scale. Applications for work on species that do not meet these criteria will have a stronger chance of approval if they can demonstrate that their results can be applied to other species or other areas with greater conservation outcomes. In addition, sites with high conservation significance will be given priority.

Project start date: Not Found

Project duration: All Kaplan Awards are granted for one year, but renewals for subsequent years may be requested. Funding for subsequent years will be decided based on the progress and results reported for the first year’s activities, and is not guaranteed.

Eligible organization: As below

● The KAP is designed to support projects on wild cats with a conservation focus and a significant field component.
● Applicants must be post-graduate students pursuing a higher degree (MSc., PhD or equivalent).
● Successful candidates will demonstrate outstanding academic credentials and conservation experience, field experience that has prepared them to undertake the proposed work, and a history of publishing work in peer-reviewed journals and/or ‘soft’ publications such as reports, magazine articles, web sites, etc.

How to apply:
The application process opens with a call for Letters of Inquiry (LOIs). The LOI asks for the title and location of the proposed project, the target species, the project budget and the amount requested from Panthera, and an abstract of the project. Qualified students who submit LOIs for projects that appear to be a good fit for the program will be asked to submit a full application and supporting documents. Both LOIs and applications must be submitted though Panthera’s grant management system, Foundant.Applicants are only permitted to apply to one Panthera grant program per intake round. If you are seeking renewal for a previous grant, please contact us directly.
