The ESD Early Career Development Grants (ECDG) is an opportunity for early career scientific staff to develop new concepts, tools and approaches with the potential to complement and/or enhance existing ESD research programs as well as develop new research directions in ESD.  These projects are envisioned to be ‘seed’ projects that can be completed within 1-2 years.  You will find the complete ECDG 2013 guidelines and submission coversheet files below.

A few things to note for those who wish to apply:
