The African Raptor Leadership Grant is a new funding opportunity aimed at developing raptor champions throughout Africa. Applicants must be African students intending to enrol as Msc or Honours students at one of three African universities and to conduct research on African raptors or their threats. Two grants of $10,000 will be awarded per year to students, including support for their in-country mentors. Online applications open in January each year and the deadline is 30 April. A successful application for a grant will not however guarantee acceptance on to the MSc Conservation Biology course.
