2019 ESA COMMUNITY FUND GRANT – applications now open

Do you have a great idea for an ecology & education event or initiative?

We’re calling for applications for our inaugural ESA Community Fund Grant with the recipient to be chosen by the Community Fund members.

Thanks to their donations, we are able to offer a grant of $2,000 (ex GST) towards an Ecology & Education project, initiative, activity, or event to be held in Australia in the coming year.

So, if you have an event which needs support, or an idea you’d like to bring to life, tell us about it.

Give us your best pitch for why the ESA Community Fund members should pick your project.

Fill out your details below and upload a short ~300 word promotional blurb for the event or initiative and photo. We’ll put the blurb up on the ESA website and the Community Fund members will vote on which project they’d like to fund.

Applications are open until Sunday 6 October and the winning entry will be announced in late October.
