The Save the Tasmanian Devil Program is one of the largest conservation programs currently under way in Australia, and its research and management programs are significant world-class collaborations between the Tasmanian Government, the University of Tasmania and other leading research institutions.
Project grants and scholarships are funded from donations received through the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal via the Tasmanian Devil Research Advisory Committee, to support research and management programs that meet the key priority areas of the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program.
Applications are considered in one round each year, however, the Dr Eric Guiler Tasmanian Devil Honours Scholarship and the Tasmanian Devil Elite Scholarship are considered twice per year.
Please note that applications for 2018 are now closed.
