Since 2001 NANFA has funded the Conservation Reaserch Grant, focusing on supporting research relating to the conservation of North America's indigenous fish fauna, particularly those that are threatend or endangered. The Conservation Research Grant could be awarded to someone in academia, a conservation group, or to an independent researcher. The maximum award for any one proposal is budgeted at $1000. The deadline for submission of an application is January 20th, 2015.

Application Guidelines

Qualifying applicants must be members in good standing of NANFA. Membership dues will be accepted with funding applications, or paid separately to NANFA, P.O. Box 1596,
Milton, WA 98354-1596. Annual dues are $30 (U.S.), $35 (Canada and México), and $44 (all other countries).

The research proposal should be no longer than 2 double-spaced pages, plus a separate short budget and timeline. Proposals should include a clear statement as to how this research will benefit the study organism and/or its environment.

A proposal should be submitted as a single .pdf with format as follows:

Proposals should be accompanied by a one-page resume from the applicant, and a letter of recommendation from the applicants major professor or from someone familiar with your background and research.

Can I assume these monies are not in some way considered federal?

Find ways for people not already interested in natives to value them.

Other than the fact that we are a registered non-profit there should be no federal connection.

These monies come from our general operating funds, which come largely from membership dues, convention registrations, auctions, sales from the web site, etc.

Federal money is available for native freshwater fish research? Well, sometimes.............. but not this.
