Jana Robeyst Trust Fund (JRTF) wishes to support scientists financially on a small scale owing to the fact that it is often difficult for researchers to find funding for small projects. This gives opportunity to fund travel to a seminar and the purchase of equipment. JRTF provides financial resources to early career scientists/conservationists and non-profit organizations to carry out vital field conservation and research work in Africa.
