Grant Writing for Wildlife Conservation

Online training to build key conservation skills

Like Comment

Who is this for? Conservation professionals, early career starters and career-switchers. So far, we have trained over 1000 conservationists from more than 70 countries, working for organisations such as the Worldwide Fund for Nature, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Wildlife Trusts. You can see all of our graduates here.

When is it? 20th July to 24th August 2021 (6 weeks, 3.5 hours learning/week).

What will I learn? This training workshop has been developed with input from funders and experienced practitioners to help conservationists create high-quality grant applications.

You will learn how to:

  • Select the grant that is right for your project. 
  • Gather the information needed to develop your grant application.
  • Create content for the application.
  • Enhance and refine that content to make sure your application stands out and is easy to understand.
  • Process the application from submission to responding to the result.

Find out more about what you'll learn by clicking on the manual below:

What will my learning experience be like? You will learn through:

  • Pre-recorded videos sent out each week for you to learn from in your own time
  • Live expert-led sessions every Tuesday. 2 live session times available (10am or 6.00pm BST) to fit your schedule
  • If you miss a live session you can still watch it in your own time later on
  • A multiple-choice exam to help you focus your learning efforts and assess your own ability. On passing the exam you will get a certificate to show others (e.g. managers or potential employers) that you have attained this skill.

How much does it cost? The cost is £180/person but there are discount options available. More information is available here.

Hi Matthew...I'd be interested in this course but I can't do this and PMWC at the same time. Have you an idea of when the next one of these grant writing courses will run? Thanks...Camilla

Hi Camilla. The dates of the next grant writing workshop will be released next week - it will start in September. We can contact you as soon as the dates are announced if that would be helpful? Best, Matthew
