SNAPP envisions a world where protecting and promoting nature works in concert with sustainable development and improving human well-being.

About the Grant

The world’s most urgent conservation and sustainable development challenges demand innovative and decision-relevant solutions. The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) believes successful solutions require integration of science with strategy, and a process that requires collaboration across sectors and organizations. We now release our 2021 Request for Proposals to find new cross-sector and interdisciplinary teams willing to do science differently for lasting impact.

SNAPP funds science that rapidly leads to tangible and enduring benefits to conservation and sustainable development. To achieve this, SNAPP funds teams of 12-15 people from diverse organizations to gather for 3-4 collaborative sessions over the course of 12-24 months. Building from a clearly articulated opportunity for cross-sectoral collaboration and innovation to influence policy and/or practice, these working groups conceive new ideas, synthesize data relevant to their work, and deliver rapid solutions. Between sessions, members collaborate remotely; work with long-term implementation partners; identify emerging opportunities for tangible, lasting change; develop and test tools and products; and publish research. The program provides technical support for repeatable synthesis and modeling methods, and creation of open-source tools and products. Over time, ideas and relationships fostered within SNAPP teams influence policy at national and international levels and initiate action across sectors. Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by the global pandemic, SNAPP welcomes innovative models including virtual and hybrid collaboration spaces.

Each year, SNAPP provides up to US $1 million total across 4-6 approved working groups, led by academic, governmental agency, multilateral, or nonprofit institutions. SNAPP is a partnership between The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). Including members from TNC and WCS in your proposal is strongly encouraged, but not required. Prospective applicants should reach out to snapp@snappartnership.net to discuss proposal ideas.

Please note: SNAPP funds are provided to convene working groups and, in some cases, to support salaries of postdoctoral fellows or research/technical assistants committed to specific aspects of the project; funds cannot be used to cover salaries of Principal Investigators or other group members. SNAPP is a niche funding source that facilitates convening and analysis for PIs on topics that are central to their current role and position or otherwise supported by their home institution for long-term implementation after the conclusion of the working group.
