We understand that there may be additional contributors to the project, but our contribution must make up the majority of the project funding, or form a recognizable and distinct component which would otherwise not take place.
 Funding is not available for work that will form part of a degree/masters/thesis/fellowship. Those with research fellowships that cover their salary only, can only apply for funds to cover research that is additional to, and independent of, any already funded research programme.
 Applications to take part in an expedition will not be considered (e.g. Operation Wallacea). They shall, though, consider applications for a stand-alone research project which take place during an expedition.
 Applicants are responsible for obtaining all relevant permits and permissions required to undertake the proposed work.
 Applications for projects based outside the UK should demonstrate appropriate liaison with collaborating organizations, local environmental agencies, NGOs and/or communities.

 This grant will not fund publication costs.
 They will not award more than one grant to any one applicant in any one year, and no more than three grants in any five year period.

 Grants are limited to ecologists at an early stage in their career. ‘Early career’ is defined as less than 5 years full time equivalent research position post- Ph.D. or -D.Phil. experience according to the date of your graduation certificate.
 It is the responsibility of the applicant to make their eligibility clear on the application form, with any relevant employment details and career breaks clearly outlined. This should be added to the ‘Additional Information’ at the end of the CV section of your application form.
