Request for Proposals on ‘Making the Case for Nature’ (National Geographic Society)

Deadline: 9 January 2019

National Geographic Society seeks proposals from around the world that advance the science of nature communication by systematically testing visual and marketing methods; visualizing complex data; or developing and evaluating new techniques directed to motivate action to conserve wildlife.

Priority will be given to projects that aim to do one or more of the following:

  • Identify the specific visual and narrative communication mechanisms that will elicit action for wildlife conservation from target audiences. Multidisciplinary collaborations between scientists (e.g., neuroscientists, psychologists) and visual artists (e.g., photographers, videographers, painters, technologists) are strongly encouraged
  • Measure differences in attitudes and/or behaviors across diverse audiences (e.g., ages, geographic regions, backgrounds) based on how information about wildlife is presented; proposals that use creative approaches to overcome sample size issues are encouraged
  • Apply and test social marketing principles to determine best practices when communicating about wildlife conservation to inspire action and increase or maintain engagement from target audiences

Organizations can apply for grants, but the person within the organization who will lead the project—not the institution—should be the applicant and will be expected to meet the requirements of the grant. Students should not submit in their advisor’s name. The individual responsible for carrying out the project should apply and write the application.

Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000, but applicants may request up to $50,000.
Successful applicants may use awarded funds over one or two years
. Requesting funds to “buy out” salaries for full-time employees from their institutions is not allowed. All applications should include a clear review of the state of knowledge about the topic and a plan for evaluating the outcomes of the proposed work.

Deadline: 9 January 2019
