Estimated Size of Grant:

The maximum annual request is $1,000.

Term of Contract:

Projects that have been funded by the SDCBF are eligible for a second year of funding. A second application must be submitted according to the application guidelines, along with a progress report from the first year of SDCBF funding.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must be associated with an organization (e.g. NGO, university, etc.) through which s/he can receive funding. Organizations, not individuals, receive funding check. There are no eligibility restrictions on the nationality of the applicant.

Funds for elements of a project that will have already occurred before awards are granted are not eligible for grants. In rare cases there are exceptions, however, ongoing costs such as salaries of permanent staff and other administrative costs are generally not considered.

Funds to cover contingencies, institutional/organizational overhead, indirect costs, tuition fees, fringe benefits or travel not associated with project activities (e.g., travel to conferences where results will be presented) are not granted.

The Foundation may consider partial funding of a project if a particular component of the project has support and can be completed independently, or if it is made clear that additional funding has been obtained or is being sought from other sources to cover remaining costs. The Foundation does not accept proposals requesting more than the maximum amount of funds allowed for the specific grant program. One may submit a proposal for subsequent phases of previously funded projects.

Roger Williams Park Zoo is not required to be a collaborator for a project to be eligible for funding. The Foundation will not consider highly invasive, terminal research projects or projects that collect/voucher specimens for funding.
