Welcome to the Earthwatch Concept Note.
Earthwatch's project review processes are guided by our mission to engage people worldwide in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. The grant application process at Earthwatch begins with the completion of a Concept Note.
Concept Notes for projects starting in spring or summer 2014 will be accepted through Thursday, January 31, 2013.
Concept Notes will be reviewed based on scientific merit, appropriateness of volunteer activities, safety and logistical viability, expected project outcomes and impacts, and Earthwatch’s available support for the project. If your Concept Note raises the interest of the Earthwatch review committee, you will then be invited to submit a Proposal. Invitations for Proposal submissions will be communicated in late February. For more information see www.earthwatch.org/research.
The Concept Note is broken down in three sections:
- Section 1: Project Design
- Section 2: Need for Volunteer Participation
- Section 3: Scientists
You must be online to complete and move through this form. A word template is available on request if you wish to work on your report offline and copy your information onto the form when it is ready to submit. Send requests to the Research team at email@example.com.
Your final Concept Note MUST be submitted to Earthwatch through this online form, however.
