Kinship Conservation Fellows Program

Kinship Foundation - Kinship Conservation Fellows


Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #177376

Grant Description

Fellowships of $8,000 to USA, Canada, and International conservation professionals to attend a one-month training program in Washington. The program curriculum will be taught by a faculty of international experts who will work closely with fellows to explore new methods of applying market-based approaches to environmental issues.

The month-long, in-residence Fellowship focuses on market-based solutions in conservation and cultivates your leadership skills in the sector. Through interactive discussions, systems-thinking exercises, and peer-learning sessions, Fellows engage with stories and innovative solutions to overcome complex challenges that they can apply to their own work.

Kinship Fellows join a community of practitioners, innovators, and leaders, who continue to network and collaborate to address environmental challenges. Their global network of 314 Fellows spans 58 countries across 7 continents.

The month-long fellowship is the beginning of years of close partnership with your cohort as well as this global network. Fellows continue to share knowledge, advice, mentorship, funding opportunities, professional development, and more. Past Fellows have returned to serve as program faculty; helped convene regional learning summits for the network; and collaborated with one another on research and project implementation. Kinship Conservation Fellows become a community of support you can rely on throughout your career.
