Jane Goodall Research Award


The Jane Goodall Research Award (JGRA) focuses on providing financial support to graduate students investigating great ape populations in Africa or Asia. Preference will be for: female researchers just starting their careers (i.e. ‘the next generation of Janes’); students from Canada, Africa, or Asia; and projects investigating how community conservation efforts undertaken by the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada (JGI) are impacting great ape populations. It is expected that by funding these researchers and projects, it will be possible to better determine great ape conservation priorities, support the professional development of primatologists, and quantify the effect of work done by the JGI on the health and wellbeing of sympatric communities of great apes and humans.
