Apply for an Award  NYMA runs two award schemes which recognise contributions to conservation (natural or cultural).  

 
President’s Award - 2018 
The President’s Fund was set up in 2000 to support research which benefits the North York Moors. Applications are welcomed for research into the natural history, archaeology, social or economic history (or current issues), or the environment (natural or built) of the Moors, and the research can be at the planning or implementation stage. If you're a student, academic, member of a local interest group, or an individual researchers - do consider applying! The outcome of the research should contribute to the body of knowledge on the National Park. Your application must include an outline of the research project, a statement of previous experience and/or academic support, and an indication of how the award would be spent. 
Previous winners include: 
Fylingdale moorland birds study 
Adders and their habitat research 
Moorland peat and vegetation survey 
Study of Barn Owl pellets 
 
Win £500 for your conservation work! 
 
We offer an annual award of £500 for conservation of the built or natural environment in the North York Moors National Park. In 2018 it's the turn of the President’s Award, which alternates with the Conservation Award, a collaborative award scheme jointly funded with the National Park Authority.
