To apply for a TIOF grant

Please write a letter explaining in detail
what you plan to do, where it will be
done, who will be involved and when
you plan to do the education campaign.
We are always interested in knowing
the estimated cost of the project and
whether it is a one-year or multi-year
project and what the other funding
sources might be. The more you tell us
about your project and your advisors,
the higher the probability of receiving
the grant.

Applications for 2018 TIOF grants should be sent to The International Osprey Foundation, PO Box 250, Sanibel, FL 33957, USA by January 31, 2018.
