Snow Leopard Network

Grants Program

The Snow Leopard Conservation Grants Program is designed to support research or conservation projects on snow leopards. Applicants are researchers, educators or conservationists from a snow leopard range country, international professionals working closely with, or hosted by, range-country counterparts, and post-graduates of any nationality pursuing a higher degree. The grants program is competitive. Project proposals are reviewed by a panel of leading world experts in snow leopard research and conservation. The selection process is transparent and based purely on the merit of the applications and their potential to contribute to snow leopard conservation at the local level, with a focus on grassroot initiatives. Proposals focusing on grassroots conservation or applied research will be viewed preferentially.



We are preparing for the Snow Leopard Conservation Grant Program and we hope that a new funding round will open before the end of the year. More details will be available here.

The grant program began in 2008. The program has received funding from the Snow Leopard Trust, the Snow Leopard Conservancy, the Whitley Fund for Nature, the World Wildlife Fund and the Snow Leopard Network. Prior to 2008, the Snow Leopard Trust funded a Small Grants program and links to the final reports for these grant-funded projects are also available below.
