Applications Open for 2013 Cohort of Kinship Conservation Fellows

Applications are now being accepted for the Kinship Conservation program until Jan. 26. The event will run from June 29 – July 26, 2013.

Kinship Foundation has opened applications for its 2013 cohort of Kinship Conservation Fellows. Eighteen applicants will be selected as Fellows, who will be awarded with a $6,000 stipend, lodging for the month-long program, and gain membership into a global community of inspired leaders.

Kinship Conservation Fellows is an innovative environmental leadership program that offers intensive, in-residence instruction in the best practices for implementing conservation projects using market-based mechanisms. During their month at Kinship, Fellows look beyond their technical and scientific capacities to understand the economic and business contexts influencing conservation worldwide.

“Kinship Conservation Fellows supports mid-career practitioners seeking to effectively implement market-based mechanisms for conservation by honing their skills in leadership, communication, economics, and business and finance,” says Kinship Foundation VP, Renee Michaels.

To date, 174 Fellows in 46 countries and six continents have been selected as Kinship Fellows.

Grounding theoretical economic, finance, and business concepts in practical and applied examples, Kinship's curriculum features a case study approach to using market-based tools to achieve positive impact. Combined with its customized leadership component, Kinship prepares Fellows to successfully implement innovative strategies in the field.

Once home, Kinship's active learning community continues to support Fellows through a growing network of regional chapters and affinity groups and provides access to new opportunities for engaging in collaboration and sharing thought leadership.

The 2013 Kinship Conservation Fellows program will take place on the campus of Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington from June 29 through July 26, 2013. Mid-career conservation practitioners with at least five years of field experience, a bachelor’s degree, and a demonstrated desire to innovate are encouraged to apply for consideration as a Kinship Fellow.
