Apply: SeyCCAT Blue Grants Fund 2020

Deadline: 20 August, 2020

The Seychelles Conservation and Climate Adaptation Trust (SeyCCAT) has launched its fourth call for proposals under the Blue Grants Fund (BGF).

SeyCCAT finances projects that fall under any of the three strategic objectives that support new and existing marine and coastal protected areas and sustainable use zones; empower the fisheries sector with robust science and know-how to improve governance, sustainability, value and market options; and nurture business models to secure the sustainable development of Seychelles’ blue economy.

SeyCCAT’s goal is to competitively grant at least $700,000 per annum to support the stewardship of Seychelles’ ocean resources, island life and blue economy.


  • Small-medium grants up to SCR 100,000. These grants will be awarded on the basis of an approved concept note. The maximum duration of grant awards is 12 months for a small-medium grant.
  • Large grants between SCR 100,000 and SCR 1,000,000. These grants will be short-listed on the basis of the concept note (stage 1), and then awarded on the basis of a full proposal (stage 2). The maximum duration of grant awards is 24 months for a large grant.


  • Applicants must be locally-registered NGOs, businesses, parastatal organisations, government departments or agencies
  • Applicant must be a citizen of Seychelles
  • Proposers must have legally existed and operated in Seychelles for a minimum of one year
  • Overseas-based organisations are not eligible, although proposals from and led by eligible local organisations may include overseas-based partners
