Conservation Leadership Programme: Accepting Applications for 2019 Future Conservationist Awards

Deadline: 28 November 2018

The Conservation Leadership Programme is accepting applications for its 2019 Future Conservationist Award to support projects in the Latin American & Caribbean region focused on either tree species or non-avian marine species based in seaward habitats.

The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) is a training and capacity building programme that targets individuals from developing countries who are early in their conservation career and demonstrate leadership potential.

Working as a partnership initiative with BirdLife International, Fauna & Flora International and the Wildlife Conservation Society, CLP builds the leadership capabilities of early-career conservation professionals working in places with limited capacity to address high-priority conservation issues.

Award Information

CLP offers Future Conservationist Awards of up to US$12,500 each to develop leadership capacity of earlycareer conservationists who want to make a positive difference on the ground.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for a CLP Future Conservationist Award, the team and project must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • CLP Awards are for team-based conservation projects – each team must have at least three people.
  • 50% or more of the team members must be nationals of the country where the project is taking place. Nationals of a country subject to sanctions or trade restrictions imposed by the USA, UK or EU are NOT eligible to participate on a project team.
  • The team leader must be a national of the country where the project is taking place. Co-leadership with a non-national will be considered, subject to clear justification.
  • All team members must be early-career conservationists with no more than five years of paid work experience in the conservation sector. ‘Paid work experience’ does not include research for a university degree. Individuals who have more than five years of paid work experience in the conservation sector are not eligible for CLP support and should not apply.
  • No team member can be a part- or full-time paid employee or contractor with a CLP partner organisation, including BirdLife International, Fauna & Flora International and the Wildlife Conservation Society, at any time from project development through to implementation. Any team member volunteering at a CLP partner organisation at the time of application and/or project implementation MUST be declared in the application. They also need to explain how the CLP proposal differs from the partner organisation’s work.
  • Applicants can participate in only one CLP project at a time and in no more than three Future Conservationist Award projects in total, serving as team leader for no more than one Future Conservationist project.
