ANNOUNCEMENT: The WCS Research Fellowship Program
The WCS Research Fellowship Program (RFP)
is a small grants program administered by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Institute which, from 1993 to 2007, funded over 300 proposals totaling more than $3 million. The RFP grants help build research capacity for the next generation of conservation practitioners worldwide. The Program supports individual field research projects that have a clear application to conservation.
In 2010, the RFP supports work related to land/seascapes, species, and/or the global challenges of wildlife health, climate change, human livelihoods, and natural resource extraction. The Program seeks to support the field work of graduate-level students (Masters, PhD, DVM, or equivalent) who will work with WCS staff in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and in special cases, North America (limited to Native Americans and First Nations, Métis, or Inuit). Collectively, the professionals receiving RFP grants will apply field-tested conservation science to the challenges facing the natural world.
The maximum award is $20,000 and application deadline is January 5, 2011.
