One $2000 grant will be awarded to a qualified woman of any age to advance the conservation of sea turtles. Applicants do not need to be students or enrolled in a degree-granting program. The funds are intended to support a sea turtle conservation activity--and not conservation research. The funds will support field work, supplies, or equipment that directly support the conservation activity. Funds cannot be used to support tuition, living expenses or student loan payments. A conservation plan should be clearly defined to detail the actual conservation activity and the anticipated outputs and outcomes. The budget should be specific. The applicant should clearly state to whom and how the results of the conservation activity will be communicated to resource managers or regulatory agencies.
Sponsored by the J. Berman Memorial Fund.
