The OBC Conservation Fund invites applications for grants for conservation work and conservation awareness projects.
OBC Conservation Committee will consider all proposals for these awards that aim to promote bird conservation in the Oriental Bird Club region. Preference will be given to proposals addressing these priority objectives:
Projects benefiting Globally Threatened bird species
Projects benefiting threatened habitats that are important for bird conservation
Projects undertaken by Asian residents
Major Conservation Awards
Up to £2000 each year for 3-5 years for long-term projects.
Proposals for these awards should be developed in collaboration with OBC Conservation Committee and must involve Asia-based project leaders (individuals or institutions).
Please submit a short summary of your proposed project (not more than 300 words) by email. Include details of the objectives, outcomes, relevance, methods, collaborations or partnerships, sustainability and contribution to conservation, plus an indication of the total budget and any matched funding.
These summaries can be submitted at any time and will normally be reviewed within four weeks of receipt. The applicant will then be advised if they have successfully passed that stage and if they will be invited to submit a full proposal.
