PEAT Needs

Funding for Peatland ECR

Apply for micro-funds during the summer field season

There are expenses coming up during the summer of 2023 that you need to pay for, but you don’t know how to finance them?

Financial support of Peatland ECR during the 2023 summer field season!

Thanks to the peatland-loving community, we are able to provide Peat ECR with micro-funds. The profits of the 2023 PEAT Calendar, which sold like hot cakes, along with other generous donations, allow us to bring back #PeatNeeds for the third summer field season – the season of 2023!

We will fund three lucky Peat ECR with up to $100 CAD each, during the three major field season months – June, July, August 2023.


  • You are a Peat ECR (students and early career professionals within 7 years of terminal degree)
  • You work in a peat/peatland-related project

There are no country or age restrictions! All Peat ECR from anywhere in the world and any age category are eligible to apply (if requirements mentioned above apply).

Fundable expenses can include:

  • New personal field gear
  • Work-from-home equipment
  • Manuscript proofreading
  • Technical courses (to expand your skills in, i.e. statistics, ecology, Indigenous knowledge, etc.)
  • Other not listed expenses that you are free to convince us to fund 😉

Submission deadlines are the respective last day of the month, prior the funding month.
