Grants of up to $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International scientists, conservationists, and educators who are within five years of receiving their degree for projects on aquatic wildlife. A preliminary application is required prior to the submission of the full proposal. Funding is intended to support innovative start-up projects on marine chondrichthyan species (skates, rays, sharks, sawfishes, and chimaeras).
Aimed at original and innovative start-up projects, the grant presents early career scientists, conservationists or educators with an opportunity to prove themselves. It targets local projects conducted by local project leaders. Whether or not the project is part of a larger endeavour, SOSF Small Grants are for specific and finite projects. Only projects concerned with marine chondrichthyan species (sharks, rays, skates, sawfishes and chimaeras) will be considered.
A special call is aimed at supporting projects that promote the recovery of sawfishes, wedgefish, and guitarfish. However, any chondrichthyan projects are welcomed.
The SOSF will consider small grant applications that, inter alia, aim to undertake the preliminary investigations necessary before a larger, longer-term project can be developed.
The costs of short-term employees or the short-term extra costs of an individual’s participation in a project may, however, be eligible. Specialist services (e.g. film editing, laboratory testing, library facilities) may also be eligible.
