Washington, DC—The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) announced today that it is now accepting grant proposals for the 2015 Christine Stevens Wildlife Awards.
AWI’s Christine Stevens Wildlife Award program, named in honor of the organization’s late founder and president for over 50 years, provides grants of up to $10,000 to award recipients to help spur innovative research on humane, non-lethal tools and techniques for wildlife conflict management and for studying wildlife.
“Such research is incredibly valuable for communities seeking humane solutions to ongoing conflicts between people and wildlife,” said AWI president Cathy Liss. “We look forward to providing financial support for a select group of applicants who will make significant contributions to non-lethal wildlife management and non-invasive wildlife study.”
To qualify for the award, applicants must be based, and the project must be completed in the United States, Canada, or Mexico.
Applications are due May 1, 2015, and AWI anticipates selecting award recipients in June 2015. The application and details concerning the application process can be accessed at http://awionline.org/csaward2015.
