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.

Eligibility Criteria

  • To qualify, applicants must be mid-career practitioners with at least five years of experience who are familiar with market-based tools and demonstrate leadership and innovative thinking.
  • A key part of the Fellows application is a proposed project describing an environmental issue related to the applicant’s work and the plans to develop a solution using market approaches.
  • Successful applicants will be familiar with business and economic principles and work in a setting where these principles can be integrated with conservation work.
  • 18 applicants are selected to participate in the training program.
  • In order to be considered for the program, applicants must meet the following requirements:
    • Possess a minimum of a four-year U.S. college degree (or its equivalent).
