Kinship Conservation Fellows is a ground-breaking environmental leadership program that emphasizes market-based solutions to environmental problems. Kinship's dynamic global network of 174 Fellows in 46 countries and 6 continents is collaborative, entrepreneurial, and dedicated to effective conservation.
At Kinship, we believe in investing in individuals with the potential to advance the future of conservation. We do this by selecting the best and the brightest and awarding them a $6,000 stipend and a month of valuable, cutting-edge training. In return, we ask Fellows to invest a month of their time with us.
Our month-long curriculum is delivered by a faculty of global experts who work closely with each carefully selected cohort of Fellows to explore fresh ways to apply market-based approaches to environmental concerns. With our case study methodology, you'll find new solutions to your real life conservation challenges. Over the course of your month with us, you'll attend dynamic sessions, participate in collaborative and independent projects, and enjoy a rich, multi-faceted experience.
Our Fellows' track record of success makes it clear that our investment benefits not only Fellows, but also their organizations, and the greater conservation community. Fellows bring home new ideas, tools, and fresh inspiration.
If you've been working in a conservation field for five years, and you're eager to strengthen your ability to lead - you're a great candidate for Kinship.----
Fellows can expect to come away from their Kinship experience with the following outcomes:
We're looking for conservation leaders with five years of experience, who are deeply committed to conservation, interested in learning about using market approaches to solve environmental problems, and ready to be part of an expanding community of global leaders.
Kinship Fellows are entrepreneurial and results-oriented. A proposed project describing an environmental issue related to your work and your plans for developing a solution using market approaches will be a key part of your application.
Successful applicants will have at least some exposure to business and economic principles and be in a work environment where these principles can be integrated with conservation work. Eighteen applicants will be selected to participate.
