Apply By: 01 May 2019
Grant Amount: 1000000 USD
The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between three partners: The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), and the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) at the University of California, Santa Barbara. SNAPP envisions a world where protecting and promoting nature works in concert with sustainable development and improving human well-being.
About the Grant:
SNAPP is inviting 2019 Request for Proposals to find new cross-sector and interdisciplinary teams willing to do science differently for lasting impact.
SNAPP funds science that leads to rapid, tangible and enduring benefits to conservation and sustainable development. To achieve this, SNAPP funds teams of 12-20 people from diverse organizations to gather for 3-4 collaborative sessions over the course of 24 months. These working groups conceive new ideas , synthesize data relevant to their work, and deliver rapid solutions to the most critical challenges facing humans and our planet. Between sessions, members collaborate remotely, work with long-term implementation partners, develop and test tools and products, and publish research. SNAPP teams influence policy at national and international levels and initiate action across sectors.
Each year, SNAPP provides up to US$1 million total across 4-6 approved working groups, led by academic, governmental agency, multilateral, or nonprofit institutions. SNAPP’s founding partners include two international conservation organizations and a synthesis science center – The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), and the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, which is the standard location for working group meetings. Including members from TNC and WCS in your proposal is strongly encouraged but not required. Prospective applicants from TNC and WCS should reach out to Jessica Musengezi and Kate Mastro (respectively) to discuss proposal ideas.
