Friends of Grasslands Small Grants

FoG Supported Projects Small Grants 2019 - Information for Applicants

In 2017, Friends of Grasslands (FoG) commenced its Supported Projects Small Grants program which offers a number of small grants each calendar year to support projects that promote investment in the understanding and management of grassy ecosystems. Grants are typically between $500 and $1500 each. Any individual or organisation can apply.

A grant might enable the recipient to undertake a small project, to meet some expenses with a project, to support training, and/or contribute to a larger project. Projects might include publications, research, education, on-ground work, advocacy, publicity and/or training. Some examples of the types of projects that have been funded previously can be found in the July-August 2017 FoG Newsletter.

FoG will publicise the projects it funds, and in addition may provide practical in-kind support if required. A grant recipient will need to keep FoG informed of progress, and provide support to FoG, for example by preparing a short article for the FoG newsletter, giving a talk to FoG, leading FoG visits to the project study site(s), and/or providing of a copy of any relevant project output (e.g. research paper, information brochure, educational video etc) to include an acknowledgement of the support provided by FoG.
