How to Apply
Applications should be a maximum of 3-4 pages (12 point font), including a brief CV and should be set out under the headings below (a reference list is not required).
APPLICATIONS EXCEEDING FOUR PAGES WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
Introduction: Briefly introduce the background to your research topic, specify the project’s aims, and outline its importance to the conservation of wildlife.
Methods: Briefly outline your proposed methodology. We require only sufficient detail to demonstrate that your aims are achievable. Remember that the assessors may not be familiar with your field of research. You must also indicate that you have obtained (or at least applied for) any relevant research licences, permits or approvals (including animal ethics).
Schedule: Outline a proposed timeframe for the completion of your project, listing major milestones, including the submission of a final report to the AWS.
Budget: Itemise the expenses involved in conducting your research. Any funds already secured from other sources must also be declared. (This will not reduce your chances of success, provided there are necessary items in your budget that are not yet funded).
Brief CV: The final page of your application should consist of a short CV, which should demonstrate your ability to produce results of a high standard within a limited timeframe. Also include the details of two referees who can comment on the proposed project, one of whom should be your academic supervisor. A current postal address is to be provided.
Please prepare your application as a single ‘Word’ document, and submit it as an email attachment to i[email protected]. For convenience, it would be helpful to name your file according to the format: ‘Your Name AWS Grant Year’, e.g. ‘Joe Bloggs AWS Grant 2022’.
