The National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association has research grants available in the field of wildlife rehabilitation, including wildlife medicine and wildlife education. An individual project may be funded up to $6,000 (US dollars), or NWRA may fund several smaller projects for a total of $6,000.
Proposals require completion of the application form including:
- résumé(s) of personnel involved,
- explanation of objectives of the project,
- a brief description of how the project will be carried out,
- a brief literature review,
- an itemized budget, and
- demonstrated financial need.
Proposals are evaluated on the basis of importance and usefulness to rehabilitators, likelihood of success, and originality. For a list of proposals funded in past years, click here.
Those receiving NWRA support are required to present the results of their project through an NWRA publication (and a future Symposium, if possible) within two years of grant receipt. An annual progress report also is required.
Applications are reviewed through the NWRA Awards and Grants Committee. Recipients are notified in writing and announced at the following NWRA Symposium.
