Raptor Research & Conservation Foundation (RRCF) has a Grants programme every year to encourage and support studies of raptors in India. We invite project proposals for 2017-18 from wildlife researchers having good raptor identification skills; with objectives that can be achieved in the scheduled time-frame; clearly defined objectives, and also with high conservation impact.
The amount of grant available is up to Rs. 2,50,000/- with a duration of 1 year. Grants are provided mainly for field work and not for attending conferences / workshops, and equipment with high capital cost. If your budget includes substantial amount of equipment you will need to provide strong justification for the same.

RRCF will also consider larger grants for projects of longer duration.
