Research proposals & fellowship grants
How can you submit a research proposal or apply for a Fellowship Grant?
Research proposals must be submitted to Ducks Unlimited Canada’s Institute for Wetland and Waterfowl Research (IWWR) by mid-November of each year. Graduate students must be attending recognized universities and from scientific colleagues within the scientific community.
The proposals can be no more than 10 pages in length and should describe the basic research idea, rationalize its importance, suggest how it will be accomplished and provide an estimate of the resources the project will require.
DUC recognizes that partnerships with North America’s universities are essential to advance IWWR research initiatives. The purpose of these fellowships is to:
- assist in the development of talented young professionals who are dedicated to furthering the conservation of wetlands and wildlife; and
- advance scientific understanding of the biology of waterfowl and wetlands with special emphasis on the Canadian prairies.
This competition is open to graduate students based at any North American university. Award money is available to provide personal or research support for successful applicants.
