The Conservation Technology Support Program (CTSP) announces the

donations of computer equipment from Hewlett Packard Company
<http://www.hp.com> and of software from ESRI <http://www.esri.com>.

U.S.-based non-profit, tax-deductible (501c3) conservation organizations
may receive applications for grants of computer hardware (computers,
printers, plotters and other devices) and mapping software by visiting the
CTSP web site <http://www.ctsp.org>.  If, after reviewing the guidelines,
you wish to apply for a grant, you will be directed to send an email which
will return the application to you.

Completed grant proposals must be postmarked no later than midnight,
January 7, 1999.  Awards will be made by mid-April, 1999, and
equipment/software packages will be delivered by June, 1999.

CTSP makes approximately 50 grants per year, most of which include a
powerful PC computer from Hewlett Packard and mapping software from ESRI
(awards of advanced systems are also available to qualified groups).  Over
the last five years, CTSP has awarded 200 groups grants worth almost $4
million dollars.

International organizations may be eligible for grants -- see the guidelines
for details.
