The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is dedicated to the protection of the environment and the promotion of sustainable development on a global scale. The Foundation supports concrete initiatives of public and private organizations through support for research and studies, technological innovation, and socially-aware practices. The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (Canada) (the “Canadian branch” of the Foundation) is focused on projects that are situated in or engage with the Canadian Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Also, proposals with a lower-latitude focus will be considered, as long as they operate primarily within Canada.
Eligible projects for the funding by the Canadian branch of the Foundation
Type: Proposed projects should have a field, observational and educational component. Studies that are primarily theoretical and that use modeling will not be considered.
Approach: Both qualitative and quantitative approaches will be considered.
Discipline: Eligible disciplines include physical science, social science, and art. Proposals by or that engage with members of Canada’s First Nations are encouraged. Projects with their primary focus in philosophy and history will not be considered.
Geography: Projects that operate in Canadian Arctic and sub-Arctic regions will be considered. Projects that operate in other regions will also be considered as long as they have an important Canadian component.
The Canadian branch of the Foundation will select up to two or three projects ranging between $50,000 to $100,000 per year, at their discretion.
Notwithstanding any other stipulations of the project selection policy (including the abovementioned admissibility criteria) the Canadian branch of the Foundation reserves the right, under special circumstances and at their discretion, to fund, in collaboration with Monaco or other branches of the Foundation, International projects taking place on Canadian territories or addressing an issue of importance for Canadians, if approved by the project committee of the Canadian branch.
