SITKA Ecosystem Grants fund proposed projects that improve the state and function of an ecosystem. All SITKA Ecosystem Grant (SEG) projects should be of the highest quality and have the potential to advance and transform the confluence of the environmental + social landscape as it relates to wildlife, stewardship and conservation.
SEG projects should contribute to achieving environmental goals principally, where by doing so, society at large and the ecosystems we are inextricably bound to benefit. This includes wild, suburban and/or urban ecosystems alike. Potential impacts and success metrics must be qualified and quantified through research and data, grassroots and community efforts, management efforts and outcomes, media and content, and activities that are supported by and or complimentary to the SEG supported project.
Grants will not be limited to enrolled graduate students, scientific researchers or individuals with non-profit affiliations, but these groups will be favored. Individuals not associated with the aforementioned groups will be required to specifically outline in sufficient detail how their personal work has prepared them for, and will dovetail with, broader regional and local efforts surrounding their area of interest as it relates to the grant proposal.
