Up to US$1 million for Working Groups on Conservation/Sustainable Development Topics from Science for Nature and People Partnership
In support of the United Nations agenda on sustainable development, the Science for People and Nature Partnership (SNAPP) aims to find solutions for problems at the interface of economic development, nature conservation, and human well-being. SNAPP operates through working groups that represent 200 institutions from more than 30 countries. SNAPP provides up to US$1 million total across 4-6 working groups. Proposals are invited from researchers and practitioners of any nationality affiliated with an academic, governmental, multilateral, or non-profit institution. Individuals operating independently are also eligible to apply. Proposals from low- and middle-income countries are especially welcome. The deadline for proposals is 10 June 2020.
SNAPP funds are provided to convene working groups and, in some cases, to support salaries of postdoctoral fellows or research/technical assistants committed to specific aspects of the project not otherwise part of their day job (see below); funds cannot be used to cover salaries of Principal Investigators or other group members. SNAPP is a niche funding source that facilitates convening and analysis for PIs on topics that are central to their current role and position or otherwise supported by their home institution for long-term implementation after the conclusion of the working group.
Please download and complete both the Proposal Template in Microsoft Word and the budget worksheet in Excel. Please edit these documents to include all information about your proposal. Proposal templates should be formatted to standard letter size (8.5” W by 11” L) with graphics embedded directly in the document. Proposals and budgets should be saved as separate files – proposals can be in MS Word or PDF format; budgets must be Excel files (if possible, please avoid working in Google Sheets, as this can affect file formatting).
