Small conservation grants

No deadline
1,500 euro


The Jana Robeyst Trust Fund (JRTF) provides financial resources to early career scientists/conservationists and non-profit organizations to carry out vital field conservation and research work in Africa.


The JRTF aims to provide relatively small levels of funding for ongoing projects or pilot programmes with a clear conservation value. This funding program is open to individuals or organizations for projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. We accept projects related to the conservation of mammals and especially (forest) elephants. Applicants can be based anywhere in the world.

Small grants will be awarded up to a maximum of 1,500 euro. Both successful and unsuccessful applicants are welcome to apply again 12 months after the submission.

Eligible project will have a clear conservation value and be based in a country in sub-Saharan Africa. Preference will go to projects in relation with elephants. Education projects will also be considered.
