Nature Regina awards an annual Conservation Grant of $1500 to support a graduate student conducting research that contributes to the conservation of nature and biological diversity. Usually only one grant is awarded each year.
The Conservation Grant is targeted at graduate students who need financial assistance and, on occasion, other kinds of help from naturalists, to carry out their nature-based projects. Projects that further the understanding of ecological relationships in the natural environment in Southern Saskatchewan are preferred candidates for the grant.
Successful applicants must agree to make an oral presentation at one of the Society’s
monthly meetings (September – May) upon completion or near-completion of the
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS
Applications received after the deadline may not be eligible for funding in the current year. Applicants who received a grant in previous years are still eligible to receive the Conservation Grant for the current year.
Nature Regina’s purpose is:
to foster, stimulate, develop and sustain an interest in, and understanding and enjoyment of, nature in all its various aspects; and
preservation, protection and conservation of natural resources of every kind.
Nature Regina occasionally provides small grants, generally less than $500, to assist conservation-minded individuals and organizations in research or conservation projects which help achieve our Society’s goals.
To apply for a Small Grant, please submit a brief project description and budget that demonstrates how the project furthers our Society’s goals .
