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,
  • Law enforcement,
  • Legislation and policy,
  • Alternative livelihood interventions,
  • Wildlife-human health interactions, and
  • Education and constituency building.

    Eligibility requirements:

    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.

    Deadline: October 31
