Paddy Pallin Foundation: Science Grants 2016

The Paddy Pallin Foundation, together with the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife offer annual Science Grants to support field-based, high-quality ecological research. The objective of the grants is to provide financial support for conservation-based research of Australian ecosystems that will ultimately lead to tangible outcomes for management.

The scope of the research is open to terrestrial, marine and freshwater research on animals and/or plants.


Grants of up to $7,000 are available.


  • Applicants must be either enrolled or have an academic position (including adjunct/visiting positions) at an Australian University or research position at a relevant institution e.g. CSIRO or a museum.
  • Applicants should also be financial members of the RZS NSW.
  • The research must address conservation problems in Australian systems and have clearly defined management implications.
  • Preference will be given to research which deals with ecological community processes.
  • For the HSI marine science grant, preference will be given to work proposed on listed marine, migratory or threatened EPBC-listed species.
