Overview: For more than 30 years Holohil Systems Ltd. has supported endangered species research and educational work for a variety of agencies and researchers. We have donated transmitters and services predominately for bat and raptor research. While we still have a strong commitment to these two groups of animals, we wish to extend our support to other species that have not previously been included. To this end, we wish to extend our support to research projects that have of high value for their species, a sound research design, and a positive conservation intention. We are proud to introduce our new Holohil Grant Program which aims to offer Holohil transmitters at a reduced (or no) cost to projects deserving of support.
Holohil Grant Program would like to support projects that generally meet the following criteria:
- The project makes significant use of Holohil transmitters for data collection.
- The project aims to advance scientific knowledge.
- The project contributes to conservation.
- The project engages/educates the public.
- The project involves underrepresented study species of high research or conservation value.
Applications submitted to the Holohil Grant Program will be judged for suitability by outside (impartial), skilled researchers and experienced professionals invited to participate as HGP Review Committee Members. Submissions will be accepted from all parts of the globe and support will be awarded four times a year.
Here’s how it works: Each quarter, Holohil will be supporting projects by donating up to CDN$2,000.00 toward the purchase of Holohil transmitters. We will also pay all shipping charges. The Holohil Grant Program is available to conservation professionals and researchers from anywhere in the world.
All we ask in return is a short (approx. one-page) report/update with photos of your work using our transmitters which we can post on the Holohil Systems Ltd. website. It’s that simple!
How to Apply: Please download, complete, and submit the Holohil Grant Program application form found at the bottom of this page (limit to 500 words). Submit the HGP application via email to firstname.lastname@example.org anytime to be included in the current quarterly evaluation cycle (see below “Deadlines” for submission and notification dates).
