Posted by Jamal Fida Saturday, January 2, 2016 0 comments
Closing Date: January 31, 2016.

OPCFHK envisions a world where Asian wildlife remains biologically diverse under the stewardship of humans, corporations and governments.  We are committed to advocating, facilitating and participating in effective conservation efforts of Asian wildlife, with an emphasis on Chinese white dolphins and giant pandas, as well as their habitats.  This will be achieved through partnerships, fundraising, research and education.

With limited available funds and given the urgency of conservation efforts, it is important that research studies are designed to be effective for conservation.  Therefore, we seek proposals with measurable conservation outcomes.

The Foundation solicits projects on threatened animal species in Asia, particularly on the Foundation’s thematic species; giant pandas and Chinese white dolphins.  The outcomes of the studies must contribute to successful conservation and could entail the development of conservation action plans and/or community education programmes.  All proposals must include relevant, specific conservation targets and measurable milestones and evaluation of the programme’s effectiveness with specific and quantifiable indicators.  Projects should focus on one of the areas below:
A. Conservation Research and Management
B. Community Education and Capacity Building

Regular projects last from 1 to 2 years should focus on either one nature of the above.  For multiple-year projects last for 3 to 5 years, both natures can be submitted but in two separate proposals. Applicants shall also explain how resources and the project works are synergised and complementing each other to achieve the overall goal.

Total Funding: 

Majority of successful applications in 2015/16 were one-year projects averaged HK$ 184,000/year (US$23,000).  The funding provided is to cover the relevant project expenses during the approved project period, as stated in the application.  Multiple-year proposals last from 3 to a maximum of 5 years and limited to HK$ 1 million per year will be considered separately based on project conservation impact.

Grant Program 2016 - SOS: Marine Conservation Photography Grant

Posted by Jamal Fida 0 comments
Closing Date: January 15, 2016.

The Save Our Seas Foundation believes that photography is a powerful tool for marine conservation. We invite emerging conservation and wildlife photographers who have a passion for marine subjects to apply for our 2016 grant. This is a unique opportunity for photographers to go on assignment, earn an income and gain experience under the guidance of National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak.

Applicants should be serious emerging photographers who may have become successful in their local region but have not been widely published in major magazines and have not earned numerous high-profile international awards. We prefer applicants to be under the age of 30, but older applicants who can still be regarded as ‘emerging’ may also be considered. Photographers with underwater photography skills in their repertoire are especially encouraged to apply.


Two winners will be selected for each grant. Each winner will receive a US$2,000 cash prize and will be given a paid three-week photographic assignment to document an SOSF-supported marine research or conservation project. The SOSF has funded more than 160 projects in more than 40 countries and the winning photographers will be assigned to tell one of these stories. Thomas P. Peschak, National Geographic Magazine photographer and director of conservation for the Save Our Seas Foundation, Kathy Moran, senior editor (natural history) of National Geographic Magazine and David Griffin, former director of photography of National Geographic Magazine, will mentor photographers throughout the process. This assignment period will be a learning and refining experience as well as an opportunity to earn income through photography. Both winners will be given the chance to showcase their work at an international conference or an exhibition. Each winner’s story will also be published as a photo essay in the Save Our Seas Foundation’s magazine.

Call For Proposal 2016 - World Bank: to Improve Development Response for Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons December 14, 2015

Posted by Jamal Fida 0 comments
Closing Date: January 24, 2016.

The World Bank’s Global Program on Forced Displacement (GPFD) is calling for proposals for innovative and transformational ideas that can improve the development response to forced displacement. Displacement tends to be protracted, and development programs in origin, host, transit, and destination countries are urgently needed to complement humanitarian assistance.

Innovative ideas may include analytical work, use of new technologies, or development projects.  Many such ideas are often at the inception stage, requiring further work to be sufficiently detailed and specific for donors or investors to support them. GPFD will provide up to $40,000 for selected teams to develop their idea into a full concept note which would meet World Bank Group standards. 

The Global Program on Forced Displacement (GPFD), housed in the World Bank’s Fragility, Conflict and Violence Group, was established in 2009 with support from Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Switzerland to enhance the global development response to forced displacement through economically and socially sustainable solutions. GPFD focuses on development responses to situations of crisis, protracted displacement and return, through operational support, partnerships, analytical work, and knowledge dissemination.

Call For Proposal 2016 - Spencer: for Education Conference

Posted by Jamal Fida Wednesday, December 2, 2015 0 comments
Closing Date: January 11, 2016.

The program supports efforts to bring together scholars whose knowledge, theoretical insight, and methodological expertise can be assembled in ways that build on and reach beyond familiar modes of thinking concerning problems in education research, specifically those related to the area of teaching and learning. Through the program, the foundation aims to encourage the research community to advance new and rigorous research in this sub field and to ultimately increase collaboration within the educational research community.

Conferences should include a broad set of perspectives on topics or problems in education as they relate to the profession and practice of teaching or how students learn in formal and informal spaces.  The foundation is particularly interested in proposals that seek to bridge disciplines, subtopics, or contexts that address how and what people learn, including fields related to teaching and learning. For example, scholars of English education might seek to engage in conversations with science, social studies, mathematics, arts, or additional discipline specific education researchers in an effort to foster greater cross-fertilization within the field. Likewise, scholars who explore themes of culturally relevant or culturally sustaining pedagogy might seek to collaborate with scholars in content-specific fields in ways that support the development of research in both areas.

§  Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-PIs applying for a conference grant must have an earned doctorate in an academic discipline or professional field, or appropriate experience in an education research-related profession.
§  The PI must be affiliated with a college, university, school district, non-profit research facility, or non-profit cultural institution that is willing to serve as the fiscal agent if the grant is awarded. The Spencer Foundation does not award grants directly to individuals.
§  Proposals are accepted from the U.S. and internationally, however all proposals must be submitted in English and budgets must be proposed in U.S. Dollars.

Total Grant:
The program will support conference proposals with budgets of up to $50,000.
