The Developing Nations Research Grants

The Developing Nations Research Grants are intended to provide financial support for scientific studies of animal behavior conducted by ABS researchers in developing countries. Applicants apply via a single application process along with the student research grants. The Developing Nations Research Grant may support both students as well as established professionals.

The goal of this award is to support animal behaviorists in developing countries who may have difficulty securing financial resources to fund their research. Awards are provided for research to be conducted within a 1-year period from the date of the award. The number of awards varies annually, and amounts range from US$ 500 to US$ 800, depending on need and funding availability. Applicants may be graduate students as well as more established members of the research community that reside and conduct research in an institution in a developing country. The following nations shall not be considered developing nations: the United States, Canada, Israel, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Portugal. Eligible candidates may receive one award as a student and one additional award as an established researcher.
