The 2021 Allan Robertson Grants will be available for 1) research and management projects and 2) registration fees and travelling to the 16th International Peatland Congress in Tallinn, Estonia, 2 - 7 May (taking into consideration the development of the Covid-19 situation).

The Grants are awarded to:

Traditionally, the grants amount to € 500 and in 2021 at least 6 Grants are available.

The winners of the grants will be announced latest in April 2021. Payment will be made by bank transfer according to receipts (registration confirmation/tickets).

Successful applicants are invited to provide a report on their project or work that will be published in the IPS magazine Peatlands International and/or give a presentation of it at an international IPS event at the latest 12 months after the grant funding has been paid to them.
