Hi! I am in no way associated with the Kinship Foundation but saw this fellowship opportunity on their LinkedIn page and thought I would share it here:
" (November 1, 2023) Kinship Foundation today announces the opening of applications for its 2024 Kinship Conservation Fellowship. Eighteen applicants will be selected for the Fellowship to be held at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, from June 30 – July 30, 2024. Delivered by a faculty of global experts, the in-residence Fellowship focuses on market-based solutions in conservation and cultivates leadership in the sector. Through interactive discussions, systems-thinking exercises, and peer-learning sessions, Fellows engage with stories and innovative solutions to overcome complex challenges that they can apply to their own work.

Applications will be accepted through January 14, 2024.

As alumni of the program, Fellows join a global community, supported through in person and virtual events, mentorship, and opportunities for collaboration, where they can connect with past cohorts and conservation practitioners to combine skills and resources to accelerate change and maximize conservation impact.

“Working to build effective cooperation between on-the-ground economic concerns and broader conservation, climate, and biodiversity goals is key to the overall approach of Kinship Conservation Fellows,” said program director, Nigel Asquith. “The faculty are conservation practitioners who are making a real world difference, but they are great teachers, many of whom are themselves Fellows going back all the way to the first cohort in 2001.”

The Fellowship is open to conservation practitioners with at least five years of on-the-ground experience, who are involved with the implementation of market-based approaches to solve environmental problems and ready to be part of an expanding community of global leaders. Successful applicants should be familiar with business and economic principles and work in a setting where these principles can be integrated with conservation work. Housing for the month and a stipend are included with the award.
