1) Objective

CLP offers Future Conservationist Awards of up to US $15,000 each to develop leadership capacity of early-career conservationists who want to make a positive difference on the ground. CLP supports teams of individuals with less than five years of professional conservation experience, who display a strong commitment to conservation and demonstrate leadership potential. All team members should have a desire to be impact multipliers across the conservation sector with the ultimate goal of mitigating threats to biological diversity. CLP develops conservation leaders by helping our grantees gain practical experience in managing their own priority projects.

Winners of these awards will develop key skills through small-scale practical conservation projects and become eligible for continued support through CLP’s Continuation Awards and Alumni Network. CLP award winners also have long-term backing and advisory support from CLP staff and partner organisations as they develop in their careers.

2) Eligibility

Applications will be accepted from teams initiating projects that meet the eligibility criteria. These criteria are designed to ensure that the project builds the capacity of all team members involved, contributes to long-term sustainable conservation achievements, has clearly focused research objectives and builds vital links between local communities, conservationists, NGOs, academic institutions and local governments. Applications are evaluated by CLP staff and partners, and by experts from other relevant organisations

3) Location

CLP offers support to early-career conservationists living and working in low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, Eastern and South-eastern Europe and the Middle East.

4) Budget

The award is US $15,000.

5) Application

pplications must be submitted via the CLP online application portal by the deadline Tuesday, 10 October 2023. Applications emailed to CLP will not be accepted.
