Kinship Foundation: Environmental Fellowship for Mid-career Conservationists

Kinship Foundation: Environmental Fellowship for Mid-career Conservationists

Deadline: 8 January 2019

Applicants from across the world are invited to submit applications for the 2019 Kinship Conservation Fellowship which is an environmental leadership program that emphasizes market-based approaches to conservation.

The Fellowship is delivered by a faculty of experts who work closely with each carefully selected cohort of Fellows to explore innovative ways to address conservation challenges. The curriculum uses a case study approach, where participants evaluate market-driven conservation practices through interactive discussions, systems-thinking exercises, and peer-learning sessions.

The program covers leadership, communication, business and finance principles, and impact measurement.

The in-residence program will be held in Bellingham, Washington from June 30 to July 31, 2019.

Benefits

Each Fellow receives a $6,000 stipend and housing for the month of the program.
