The fellowship duration ranges from 8 to 12 months. The fellowship provides funding to support a research project and professional development. Through research and/or on-the ground activities, fellows will contribute to local solutions and all levels of policymaking.
Applicants from indigenous or traditional communities, preferably with links to an indigenous organisation at the national/regional level are encouraged to apply. There are no education limitations on this fellowship. However, applicants must be able to communicate ideas clearly and concisely, orally and in writing.
