The Robin Rigby Trust Call for Proposals 2021: Collaborative Coastal Research


The Robin Rigby Trust was established in 2007 in memory of Patricia Robin Rigby. The fund supports coastal and nearshore conservation research conducted by young people, and encourages international collaboration. The fund is seeking proposals for projects focused on environmental and resource management, social and economic development, conservation and biodiversity surveys, and policy studies, with a specific emphasis on improving livelihoods of those living in coastal communities. Projects should be designed to produce direct benefits to communities, and establish strong collaborative links between applicant and community partners.


Applications should include a proposal consisting of i) a description of the proposed project, including methods and time frame, ii) a detailed description of collaboration with coastal communities, research organizations, or non-governmental organization; iii) expected outcomes, iv) a budget, and v) an applicant description. One Letter of Support is also required from your primary community-based partner in the proposal.
