Darwin Initiative: applying for scoping project funding
Scoping projects are small grants intended to help applicants who are new to the Darwin Initiative. The aim is to develop a workable project idea and build potential project partnerships within the country where the project would take place. A successful scoping project should lead to a main round project application.
The round 23 scoping study fund is now open for applications. The closing date for applications is Monday 19 December 2016.
