Worldwide Grants. The PTES makes grants to scientific researchers and conservationists for the preservation of endangered species through research and practical field work.

The worldwide grants are made to individuals representing small nonprofit organizations for conservation and development in the developing world.

The Trust accepts grant requests from applicants working and established in the UK; UK overseas territories; and countries not classified by the World Bank as high-income.

Worldwide grants are between £3 thousand and £10 thousand per year, up to a maximum of £20 thousand.

Priority is for research and conservation on species classified by the IUCN as endangered, critically endangered, and extinct in the wild.
