Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources
Wildlife management and conservation. SCIF makes grants for wildlife management, research, and capacity building. Most funded projects focus on the habitats and wildlife species of special interest at SCIF (i.e., the world’s "big game” species).
SCIF makes grants to government agencies, non-governmental organizations, research organizations, private businesses, and universities.
Large grants are for projects requiring more than US$5 thousand. Small grants are below US$5 thousand.
Additionally, SCIF’s local chapters can apply for matching grants of up to US$2 thousand per project per year from the Foundation.
APPLICATION: An application includes information about the purpose and goal of the project; matching funds; project partners; project methods and timetable; expected results; social, political, and economic benefits of the project; and qualifications of the applicant’s organization and its partners.
Applications for large grants must be received before the end of the year. Applications for small grants can be submitted at any time.
About conservation grants, and how to apply
Geographical Distribution of Grant Activities in Developing Countries
SCIF takes the view that responsible hunting plays an important role in the science of wildlife conservation, and in the generation of revenue to help pay for it.
The Foundation’s educational programs include competitive scholarships to university students in the USA who are concentrating in natural resources (particularly wildlife sciences) and related fields of study. SCI also funds a variety of youth programs in conservation science and education.
Humanitarian services refer to programs that include health, educational, and other charitable assistance at the community level in developing countries.
SCI produces an annual report, and it posts contact information.
