Apply for Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) Funding Program!

Deadline: 6 June 2018

The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) has announced its 2018 Request for Proposals to convene interdisciplinary teams and invites you to be a part of the solution.

The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) takes on this key challenge and believes that successful solutions cannot be achieved by a single organization acting alone.

SNAPP aims to deliver innovative science in a practical form that can be rapidly adopted by its intended audiences or partners (e.g., field programs working on linkages of wildlife health and human livelihoods, national governments in eastern Africa focused on forests and sustainable agriculture intensification, or state governments in western US addressing water rights and drought issues).

SNAPP provides funding to bring together teams of 12-18 people from diverse organizations that they refer to as working groups. SNAPP working groups meet intensively in 3-4 in-person collaborative sessions (lasting 3-5 days each) over the course of 18-24 months. Strong leaders with open minds and flexible facilitation styles guide the teams to deliver rapid solutions to the most critical challenges facing humans and our planet. Between sessions, team members collaborate remotely to publish research, develop implementation tools and products, and support decision-makers’ use of the results.

Each year, SNAPP provides up to US$1 million total across 4-6 approved working groups, led by academic, governmental agency, multilateral, or not-for-profit institutions.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Researchers and practitioners of any nationality affiliated with an academic, governmental agency, multilateral, or nonprofit institution may submit a proposal. Individuals operating independently are also eligible to apply.
  • Individuals from private sector institutions are fully eligible to be participants of a working group but are not eligible to lead SNAPP working groups as PIs.
  • Individuals and organizations from the humanitarian and development sectors are encouraged to submit SNAPP proposals.
  • Proposals from low- and middle-income countries are especially welcomed.
