THE WILLIAM I. SPENCER CONSERVATION GRANTS PROGRAM
Supporting the development of new knowledge is an important element of the Boone and Crockett Club’s mission.
Since 1948, the Boone and Crockett Club through its William I. Spencer Conservation Grants Program has been investing in research and career development to advance science-based wildlife management and to promote the Club’s mission to conserve and manage wildlife, especially big game and its habitat in North America. Nearly every year the Club solicits proposals to address specific research themes.
We will not be sending Request for Proposals in 2019. Thank you for your interest in the Boone and Crockett Club Conservation Grants Program.
Eligibility: Researchers, graduate students or their supervisors from North America may apply for funds to support projects based in the USA, Canada, or Mexico.
Research proposals and proposed budget should be submitted to the Boone and Crockett Club by November 27, 2017. Proposals must follow the guidelines in the request for proposals. Priority is given to projects that (1) are aligned with the mission of the Club; (2) demonstrate active collaborations in partner contributions and matched funding; (3) support the development of new knowledge that is management or policy focused; and (4) have the potential for widespread application of the results. Other considerations include project feasibility and researcher qualifications. Grants provided are for $25,000 or less and multi-partner collaborations are strongly encouraged. Funding decisions will be made by January 15, 2018.
