Wildlife Queensland runs a Student Research Grants Program available to students at Queensland Universities. Five grants of $1000 each are awarded each year.
Eligible research projects are those which investigate methods of addressing or reversing the decline in threatened native plant and animal species or their habitat, or other applied conservation outcomes in Queensland.
This incorporates biodiversity conservation including endangered species, vegetation communities and regional ecosystems.
Five grants of $1000 each are available each year.
