Apply for Continuation Funding

WE ARE ACCEPTING CONCEPT NOTES FOR 2022 CONTINUATION FUNDING

WFN’s Continuation Funding enables previous Whitley Award winners to scale up successful conservation projects across terrestrial, marine and freshwater habitat, with multi-year funding. Continuation Funding is also available for projects implementing nature-based solutions, which tackle the climate and biodiversity crises hand-in-hand with community involvement.

HOW DO I APPLY?

       1. Check your eligibility

You are eligible to apply only if you have previously won a Whitley Award and successfully completed your grant (final report submitted, and grant closed by WFN).

WFN Associate Award and Runner-Up prize winners are not eligible for Continuation Funding and should consider applying for a Whitley Award instead.

       2. Submit your application

First you will need to submit a brief concept note to WFN. Full instructions have been emailed to the Winner Network by WFN’s Head of Grants, Janice Law. Please get in touch to request a copy if needed.

Following this, you will be given feedback and may be asked to submit a full application.

Successful applicants can expect to receive funding in November of the year they apply.
