University students are invited to enter the 1999 BP Conservation
Programme to secure funding, support and training for international
conservation research projects which address global priorities at a
local level.

All projects applying for an award must focus on a conservation issue of
global importance, have a majority of the team members in full or
part-time education and have strong links with the country where the
project will take place. Teams planning to work within their own country
are also eligible.

Each year, the Programme presents awards and training to thirteen teams
- £5,000 is given to the four best projects; £3,000 is received by eight
runner-up projects and the top 'Follow-Up' Award of £10,000 is presented
to the best proposal for follow-up work submitted by a previous winner.

Celebrating its 14th year in 1999, the BP Conservation Programme is the
result of a long-term partnership between wildlife conservation
organisations BirdLife International and Fauna & Flora International,
and The British Petroleum Company plc.  Since 1985, the Programme has
helped 117 international student teams to implement conservation
research objectives in 45 countries. 

- The closing date for applications is 16 November 1998 -
