Fellowships of $6,000 to USA, Canada, and International conservation professionals to attend a one-month training program at a university in Washington State. 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.

Using a case study methodology, Fellows identify new solutions to real life conservation challenges. Over the course of the month, Fellows attend dynamic sessions, participate in collaborative and independent projects, and attend field trips.

Kinship Fellows join a community of practitioners, where they continue to network and collaborate to address environmental challenges. The global network of 282 Fellows in 51 countries across 7 continents is collaborative, innovative, and dedicated to effective conservation. Fellows bring home new ideas, tools, and inspiration. Their success benefits their organizations and the greater conservation community.

Applicants who meet the program requirements will be evaluated in the following areas:

  • Proposed project viability and appropriateness
  • Leadership potential
  • Potential contribution to the month-long program and to an ongoing community of leaders
