Molecular Wildlife & Ecology Grant

Supporting the Accessibility of Molecular Methods in Wildlife Management and Conservation

The Molecular Wildlife & Ecology Grant supports the application of genetic and genomic tools in wildlife management and conservation. Research on wildlife populations is vital for understanding biodiversity, and making informed conservation decisions. The grant will provide molecular tools to researchers who align with Zymo Research’s vision to contribute to the greater good of  humanity through protecting and preserving wildlife for future generations.

The grant will be awarded to five applicants each quarter, who will receive a $5,000 credit to use on Zymo Research products. Each grant recipient will also receive a technical consultation with Zymo Research product specialists for tailored workflow recommendations.

Eligibility and Requirements

  • Proposed project must be original work
  • Entries must be complete and written in English
  • Proposed project must be on wildlife or conservation-oriented research with an emphasis on molecular methods
  • Applicants must be willing to share information about their project with Zymo Research and be open to participating in webinars discussing their research and methods

Selection Process

Proposals will be reviewed at the end of each quarter, with applications due on March 31st, June 30th, September 30th, and December 31st. Applicants will be notified of the decision by the 15th of the following month. The qualified fields of study encompass a range of wildlife research topics.

The selection committee will prioritize those who demonstrate a deep care and commitment to their work, the species they are studying, and the impact it has on conservation or wildlife management. Proposals should exemplify the mission of the Molecular Wildlife & Ecology Grant.
