Scientific researcher measuring sea grass.

As part of the Paddy Pallin Science Grants, FNPW annually offers up to two $7,000 grants to support marine and terrestial research in partnership with the Paddy Pallin Foundation.

The objective of FNPW's Science Grants is to provide financial support for conservation-based research of Australian ecosystems that will ultimately lead to tangible outcomes for conservation and management. The scope of the research is open to research on threatened or migratory EPBC listed species and communities.

These grants are open to postgraduate students and Early Career Researchers (within 3 years of completing a PhD).

Also on offer are two grants funded by the Paddy Pallin Foundation (up to $7,000 each). These grants are for marine, terrestrial or freswater systems, with a preference for ecosystem benefits.

The grants are administered by the Royal Zoological Society of NSW.
