Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Grants for marine environment. SOSF makes grants worldwide for research, conservation, and/or education to protect the marine environment. Projects should integrate at least two of these components and focus on charismatic marine megafauna — particularly sharks, rays, and skates.

Most grant recipients are nonprofit conservation organizations that have programs or projects related to marine environment, fisheries, and related themes.


APPLICATION: The SOSF makes grants in four categories:
  • Photography grants of US$2 thousand;
  • Emergency funds of less than US$5 thousand;
  • Small grants of less than US$10 thousand; and
  • Keystone grants ranging from US$10 thousand to US$100 thousand.

Each type of grant has a specific purpose and application process. The emergency funds are available on a continuous basis. The small grants have an annual cycle, and the keystone grants and photography grants operate biennially.
