Wildlife Conservation Fellowship Program
Program Fellowships » Non Profit Funded Programs » Educational Fellowships
Under the MENTOR Program, fellowships are available to assist individuals to pursue academic studies at the College of African Wildlife Management in order to earn a Post-Graduate Diploma and to obtain one-on-one guidance from field based Mentors (role models/ advisors) whom they will work with to conduct bushmeat assessments and implement projects.
The program is an 18 month commitment, full-time.
The Fellows will develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and practices to mitigate the illegal bushmeat exploitation in East Africa by focusing on various components of the bushmeat trade including:
Applied bushmeat research and monitoring,
Legislation and policy,
Alternative livelihood interventions,
Wildlife-human health interactions, and
Education and constituency building.
Fellowship candidates must have at least three years of conservation experience, a bachelor's degree, leadership potential, and a commitment to wildlife conservation.
Citizens of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda are eligible to apply.
