Project Guidelines and Grant Application Format 
Project Guidelines 
        The mission of the Margot Marsh Biodiversity Foundation is to  
contribute to 
global biodiversity conservation by providing strategically targeted, 
catalytic support for the conservation of endangered nonhuman primates and 
their natural habitats.  Projects submitted to the foundation should have 
one or more of the following characteristics: 
1.      projects focusing on critically endangered and endangered nonhuman 
primates living in their natural habitats; 
2.      primate projects being conducted in areas of high overall biodiversity 
and under great threat (e.g., “threatened hotspots”, “megadiversity” 
countries) - to ensure maximum multiplier effect for each project; 
3.      projects being carried out by nationals from the tropical countries to 
increase local capacity for implementing biodiversity conservation; 
4.      projects that strengthen international networks of field-based primate 
specialists and enhance their capacity to be successful conservationists; 
5.      projects that result in publication of information on endangered  
species in a format that is useful both to experts and the general public. 
Projects should contribute to at least one, and preferably more, of the 
following themes: 
1.      enhancement of scientific understanding/knowledge of the target 
2.      improved protection of a key species, habitat, or reserved area; 
3.      demonstration of economic benefit achieved through conservation of a 
species and its habitat, as compared to loss thereof; 
4.      increased public awareness or educational impact resulting from the 
project in question; 
5.      improved local capacity to carry out future conservation efforts  
training or practical experience obtained through project participation; and 
6.      modification of inappropriate policies or legislation that previously  
t species or habitat decline. 
Grant Application Format 
The foundation will accept grant applications only from qualified tax-exempt 
organizations.  All proposals for grant support should include verification 
that the organization requesting the grant is at present an organization 
exempt from taxation under the United States of America's Internal Revenue 
Code Sections 501(c)(3) or 509(a).  Copies of the determination letter from 
the Internal Revenue Service must accompany the grant request.  If you are 
not based in the United States, please indicate the U.S.-based institution 
that has tax-exempt status and will act as the sponsor of your project, with 
full fiscal responsibility for the grant.  A letter from the U.S.-based 
tax-exempt organization indicating their willingness to serve in this way 
should accompany the proposal.  Failure to include such information will 
result in return of the grant proposal. 
        The following format should be used for your grant application, which 
should not exceed five (5) double-spaced typed pages of main text (not 
including attachments): 
1.      Title of project.  Include a descriptive title that includes the  
of the target species and the geographic location of the project (e.g., 
“Conservation of the muriqui, Brachyteles arachnoides, in the state of Minas 
Gerais, Brazil”). 
2.      Abstract of the project.  Include an abstract of not more than one 
paragraph summarizing the principal objectives of the project. 
3.      Project personnel and institutional affiliations.  Provide  
information on 
the principal investigator with curriculum vitae, plus mention all other 
major collaborators, and their institutional affiliations.  (Do not include 
curricula for everyone, only the principal investigator). 
4.      Objectives of project.  Describe the main objectives of the project,  
specific activities, how they will contribute to conservation of the target 
species and ecosystems, and how these are consistent with the Foundation's 
mission. This should be the main body of the application and should be 
specific, while at the same time not exceeding five double-spaced pages. 
Include a map of the project area and any other relevant supporting 
5.      Time frame of the project.  Describe the time frame of the project, 
expected starting date and duration.  Note that a progress report is 
required six months after receipt of the grant, and a final report upon 
6.      Expected project outputs.  Describe the specific outputs of the  
e.g., expected scientific publications, popular articles, conservation 
action plans, management plans, etc.  Presumably each project will have one 
or more outputs of this kind as one of its objectives.  If this is not the 
case, please explain why and what other impacts the project is likely to 
7.      Collaborating institutions in the project country. Please describe the 
collaborating institutions with which you will be working in the project 
country, and include letters of support from them if at all possible.  This 
is especially important for applicants who are not nationals from the 
country in which the work is to be conducted. 
8.      Professional references.  Please list three references that the 
Foundation can contact about your project should it choose to do so.  The 
list of references should include mailing addresses, phones, fax numbers, 
and e-mail addresses if available. 
9.      Budget of the project.  Please give as detailed a budget as you can  
the project, including support (if any) from other sources.  Amounts should 
be given in U.S. dollars, not in other currencies.  Note also that the 
Foundation does not pay overheads, only direct project expenses. 
        Please note that you will be responsible for providing the Foundation  
the following materials during and at the end of the project: 
1.      A progress report six months after receipt of the grant. 
2.      A final report upon termination of the project. 
3.      Full financial accounting of the project. 
4.      Five copies each of any scientific or popular publications, newspaper  
magazine articles, or reports, action plans, etc., resulting from the 
project.  Grant recipients are encouraged to publish at least some of their 
findings in the newsletters and journal of the IUCN/SSC Primate Specialist 
Group (i.e., Primate Conservation, Asian Primates, African Primates, 
Neotropical Primates and Lemur News). 
Please submit your application in duplicate.  If you want to send a 
preliminary version by fax or e-mail, please do so, but a hard copy will be 
required for formal consideration of the project.  Do not submit computer 
disks of your project, but rather paper copies. 
Please note that applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis, 
but are considered for funding at semi-annual meetings of the Board of the 
Foundation.  Notification of awards will take place within one month after 
each Board meeting date.  All grant applications should be sent to:
