In 2022, the Climate Science Alliance’s Binational Working Group launched the small grants program with the goal of supporting our partner’s professional, research, and educational efforts in a transparent and equitable manner.
By providing our partners with resources in the form of small grants and technical support, we aim to increase equity in funding availability to our partners across the US-Mexico border. We are interested in supporting projects that fill gaps in existing projects, help seed fund new efforts, and/or help disseminate the work being achieved in a joint effort to safeguard natural and human communities in the face of a changing climate.
About the Grant
The total amount available for each year varies. Projects must have a climate change adaptation emphasis, and should be geographically constrained to the Baja California Peninsula, its surrounding waters, or the Mexico-California border region.
There are two types of funding available to support professional development opportunities or research/outreach support.
I. Professional Development opportunities
Examples include, but are not limited to, conference attendance fees, education course or training fees, certification fees, or compensation for community outreach efforts in the Baja California Peninsula region.
II. Research and/or Outreach Support
Examples include, but are not limited to, related supplies, materials, communication tools or platforms, or travel support for research and/or outreach efforts in the Baja California Peninsula region.
