Conservation Connect Fellowship Program

About the Conservation Connect Fellowship

The National Forest Foundation (NFF) invites master's or PhD student applications for a Conservation Connect Program Fellowship, with a structured practicum in the summer of 2019 at the Missoula, Montana office, a field office of the NFF, or hosted by a partner organization.

Conservation Connect Fellows:

  • Match the knowledge they are acquiring through academic work with practical, hands-on experience
  • Expand their personal and professional networks
  • Contribute directly to collaborative stewardship of our National Forests

NFF believes in the value of matching the cutting-edge knowledge acquired at the graduate level of universities with practical, hands-on experience. The purposes of the Conservation Connect Fellowship Program are to align NFF’s collaboration and conservation work with a practicum and experiential education opportunity, and to build a cohort of next generation leaders in the field of natural resource conflict resolution. The NFF will strive to meet each Fellow’s learning objectives, while also effectively extending the capacity of NFF and its partners to deliver conservation results for National Forests and Grasslands. NFF gives Fellows the chance to gain direct experience in the variety of NFF and partner functions.
