Conservation Technology Support Program
The Conservation Technology Support Program (CTSP) is requesting
proposals from qualified applicants to be considered for its 1996
grant program. Successful applicants, which must be 501(c)(3)
organizations active in biodiversity conservation and conservation
education, will receive an in-kind grant of hardware, software,
training and support to establish a geographic information system.
Approximately 55 major grants valued at more than $1,000,000 will
be awarded by CTSP in 1996. Hardware will be provided by Hewlett-
Packard Company and Apple Computer. Software will be provided by
Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI). Training and
will be provided by the Smithsonian Institution's National Zoological
Park Conservation and Research Center, the Conservation GIS
Consortium and the World Wildlife Fund. Co-sponsors of CTSP
Trimble Navigation, GTCO Corporation, Iomega Corporation,
ERDAS, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation. Co-sponsors will award
approximately 70 additional hardware and software grants.
The CTSP was created to provide support for those
conservation organizations that recognize the importance of
spatial data to enhance their conservation programs, are committed
to providing the technical and staff support to maintain those
programs once initiated, but lack the funds and expertise to get
the program underway. CTSP was initiated in 1994, and granted
donations of hardware, software and training to more than 40
conservation organizations in 1995.
A digital copy of the application form (including appendices) is
available now by sending an email message to <email@example.com>.
In your message please include only your name, organization,
mailing address, and phone number. You will automatically receive
the latest information about the CTSP and how to retrieve the
application materials via return e-mail. Please do *not* send
other messages or a completed application to this email address.
Applications must be postmarked on or before January 16, 1996.
CTSP award announcements will be made by March 15, 1996.
