Small Grants

Projects in this category may receive funding up to $2,500. Projects must address one of the strategic initiatives of MBF: habitat conservation, scientific research and monitoring, outreach and education, or sustainable development.

We encourage projects in and near the Monarch Biosphere Reserve in central Mexico. We welcome applications by students and local community members as well as by university faculty members; preference is given to those who have had some experience working in this area and to Mexican nationals. For most projects, funding is limited to $2,500 US per year, with the possibility of renewal for a subsequent year.
