Wildlife management and conservation. SCIF makes grants for wildlife management, research, and enforcement. Most funded projects focus on the habitats and wildlife species of special interest at SCIF, i.e., the world’s “big game” species.

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.
SCIF’s local chapters can apply for matching grants of up to US$2 thousand per project per year from the Foundation. Applications are reviewed twice a year.

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 outdoor education.
