HOW TO SUPPORT
Support for the establishment of this training school is critical to providing exceptional skills to African primatologists if they must take their place as primate conservation leaders and inspire a next generation of Africans. Your support can make a huge difference to helping us launch this promising training initiative at the IPS congress in Nairobi Kenya, 2018. Here are ways you can support this initiative besides contributing ideas/suggestions and volunteering teaching expertise:
The African Primatologists Training School’s building fund: An estimate $60,000 – $80,000 (depending on actual location) is required to build the school facility that will accommodate 15 – 20 students and 5 trainers every training session. A well- equipped laboratory, library, offices and classrooms will also be available within the school facility. The facility is proposed to be located within proximity of the Okomu National park, Edo State, Nigeria – a primate haven. However, the school’s location feasibility study is ongoing and a definite location will be determined by the school’s board and faculty members.
Students’ fellowships: The School will administer different packages of fellowships and grants to support students to the training school who have met the admissions criteria. This fellowship and grants will cover travel, educational materials, field trips and/or living expenses.
Teaching Fund: The school will administer grants to trainers from varying locations to support their travel, training allowances, living expenses and costs related to the training engagements.
Research Grant: This grant will support research work of one of the students in their home country that faculty members have voted as cutting-edge or revolutionary.
Please note that you can choose to have one of this funding areas named after you or your organization
