Kingston’s Conservancy and Ecosystems Grants

The Nature Conservancy at the University of Rhode Island announces a small grants program to support scholarly research in collaboration with URI faculty sponsors in ocean and estuarine science and policy. Applicants may request two years of funding (a maximum of $12,000 per year); however, approval for a second year is contingent upon progress and funding availability. This year’s proposition will focus on the following topics: restoration and conservation of marine and coastal ecosystems and the spatial extent and evaluation of ecosystems services provided by existing and restored marine and coastal habitats. Decisions will be made in February; and funds will be awarded in April. Research proposals can cover any biogeographic extent, from local to global systems. The main focus will be in proposals that provide insights into effective methods for advancing the conservation and restoration of marine and coastal ecosystems in geographies where our region works, including RI and southern New England.

The State of Rhode Island has taken a proactive role in preparing for climate change and implementing environmental policies that protect the unique coasts and watershed. However, there are not always the means to cover all of the essential financial obligations and commitments. The Coastal Institute serves as a partner on several initiatives to facilitate their completion when the focus is environmental health and aligns with the mission of the Coastal Institute.
