The Conservation Leadership Programme is based at the Wildlife Conservation Society and is announcing their call for applications for 2014 awards. The organization supports team-based projects focused on high priority species and landscapes in developing countries. The project leader must be a national of the country where the project will take place, so this call will be most applicable to the international students at ESF. While these awards do not directly fund university work, applicants can apply for projects which will contribute to their degree programs. Since the awards are announced in April, these grants could be particularly interesting for students who are graduating in May, returning home, and would like to secure funding for conservation work. Awards start at $15,000 for one year projects. Applicants should have no more than 5 years of paid conservation experience.
Deadline: November 11, 2013
