The Developing Nations Research Grants

ABS announces the annual Developing Nations Research Grant Competition. The funds are intended to provide financial support for scientific studies of animal behavior conducted by current Animal Behavior Society student members, as well as more established researchers, who are residents of a developing nation and are conducting research at an institution in a developing nation. Please note that developing nation student members of ABS are also eligible to apply for the annual Student Research Grants Competition, and are eligible to receive both a Developing Nations Research grant and a Student Research Grant, but not in the same year.

ABS uses the World Bank’s classification of nations by income (excluding all “high-income” and OECD member economies) to identify Developing Nations. Please refer to the following website to check that your nation qualifies: http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-and-lending-groups. Grants are awarded for research to be conducted within a 1-year period from the date of receipt of this grant.

Applications will be accepted through the online Grant Submission System.

Grant Submission Deadline: December 15, 2017

Please watch this space for the application link coming soon!
