Applications are open for WWF Prince Bernhard Scholarships 2017 for nature conservation with an aim to provide financial support to individuals who wish to pursue short-term professional training or formal studies that will help them contribute more effectively to conservation efforts in their country.
Each scholarship empowers a dedicated conservationist to build his or her capacity. In turn, these people are in a position to share the benefits of their knowledge and skills with others.
Applicants must be nationals from Africa, Asia/Pacific, Latin America/Caribbean, Eastern Europe & Middle East. WWF staff or candidates working as partners with WWF will also be considered.
Applications are encouraged from people seeking to build skills in specific subjects that will enhance their contribution to nature conservation. In particular, women and people working for non-governmental or community-based organisations are encouraged to apply.
For more information, please visit the WWF Prince Bernhard Scholarships website. The deadline for applications is 6 January 2017.
