Cooperative Research Grants

The Cooperative Research Grant Program provides funding for projects that benefit the state's non-game wildlife, botanical resources or fungi. Our grant guidance document gives a brief overview of the program and the application process. Priority is given to projects that address the population status or natural history of West Virginia species of concern as named in the WV Wildlife Conservation Action Plan. The WV rare species list and grant application booklet provide a list of species and/or projects that are a priority to the Wildlife Diversity Unit. Other information about our research grant program:

  • College and university faculty, staff, and students along with all qualified individual researchers are eligible to submit proposals.
  • To provide flexibility in the types of projects supported, definite monetary limits have not been established. However, the Program usually funds projects which will be completed within one 12-month project cycle and which are normally limited to less than $8,000.
  • A Proposal Budget Spreadsheet has been developed to standardize budget information submitted with the application package.
  • Payment will be made upon delivery of services or products. If circumstances warrant alternative funding methods, payment schedule may be negotiable.
  • Funding recipients will be sent instructions outlining specific information and baseline data that must be included in the final report.
