Every year, the National Forest Foundation (NFF) invites graduate students (pursuing a master's or doctoral degree) to apply to the Conservation Connect Fellowship Program. The fellowship includes a summer or academic year practicum at NFF's Missoula, Montana office, a field office, or hosted by a partner organization. See below for a new, academic year 2021/2022 Conservation Finance and Carbon Policy fellowship opportunity.
Conservation Connect fellowships aim to build experience, knowledge, and skills within the next generation of collaborative and conservation leaders to support each other and advance the field. We are striving to build a cohort of emerging leaders, connecting graduate students who will go on to do important work with communities and public lands in the future!
Here's what students gain by being a Conservation Connect fellow:
We thank the Exxon Mobil Foundation, the Watershed Research and Training Center, Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines and an anonymous donor for their generous support of the 2021 Conservation Connect Fellowship Program.
