Researchers in biodiversity conservation and ecological sciences need to raise money throughout their career from national and international organizations for conducting (i) their independent research,(ii) to learn new techniques, and (iii) to attend relevant conferences and workshops within and outside the country. The field of ecology and conservation sciences is constantly evolving and has become highly inter and trans-disciplinary in nature during the last few years. Although, academic achievements, research experience, publications and strength of the proposal are the most important criteria for selection but supplementary documents do provide strong support for the application. As a formal course on grant writing is still not very common at academic/research institutes across India, hence this workshop will provide a holistic idea about the grant process, focusing on some common grants that are available for students.
Prasenjeet Yadav, national Geographic photographer, will join the discussion to cover some of the grants available from the National Geographic Society.
