Funding

The Centre receives its funds from the Pragya Education and Environment Trust which depends entirely upon donations and project grants from various organisations, charitable trusts, individuals and national as well as international funding agencies. The Centre accepts consultancies only through the Trust. The Trust solicits Donations also towards a corpus fund, extension of infrastructure and field and laboratory equipment, establishing Chairs for long-term support and in areas of special interest, and awarding scholarships. Research projects, Training courses and Seminars/Conferences etc. will be based largely on funding for specific activity.
