Early Grant Information for NGOs
The purpose of this policy is to support research, conservation or educational projects that are capable of attracting significant public attention and that, as a result, may genuinely increase public and government awareness of the urgent need to protect the marine environment. As part of this approach, the Foundation requires all grant holders to undertake public awareness and environmental educational activities (giving talks, issuing press releases, etc.) as part of their project.

The focus of the Foundation is on charismatic marine megafauna, and more specifically on elasmobranchs (sharks, rays and skates).
Most of the projects supported by the Foundation currently fall into one or more of three major programme areas:
Amount: up to10,000 USD.
The usual project duration is limited to 12 months.
The costs of short-term employees or the short-term extra costs of an individual’s participation in a project may be eligible, if justified.
The Foundation does not support publication-associated costs through regular funding.
The Foundation does not support the attendance of conferences in allocated funding as it is already providing Student Travel Grants to the AES, the EEA, the OCS and Sharks International.
The Foundation does not support satellite tags in SOSF Small Grants.
The Foundation will not consider applications in which more than 10% of requested funding is allocated to travel expenses. The Foundation promotes local projects by local people.
All equipment funded remains the property of the NGO or institution.
The Foundation is not able to pay overheads, administration and handling fees to large commercial or non-commercial, governmental or non-governmental institutions or organisations (such as Universities or Non-Governmental Organisations). SOSF funds project leaders and projects.
Joint funding/co-funding of a project by SOSF with another funding agency is welcomed, but not essential.

The Small Grant application process consists of a two-stage online application:
Stage I involves completing a short online form, equivalent to one or two pages.
Stage II, by invitation only based on the Stage I application, will involve the completion of a longer and more detailed online form, equivalent to 10 pages.
Funding is awarded for only one financial year. The SOSF will consider small grant applications that, inter alia, aim to undertake the preliminary investigations necessary before a larger, longer-term project can be developed.
Successful applicants for small project grants, including scoping projects, are not eligible to submit a Small Grant application the following year, but are not excluded from submitting a new Keystone Grant application.
Only one application will be accepted from any one applicant.
All applications will be reviewed by the SOSF scientific committee and require final approval from the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
