Our Fellowship programme provides structured training to early-career conservation biologists to undertake an applied research or conservation project on a local EDGE species.
The EDGE Fellowship programme is more than just a source of funding. In addition to receiving a grant of up to £10,000, EDGE Fellows attend two regional training courses; undertake online modules in relevant topics; and receive one-to-one support from a scientific advisor based at ZSL or a partner organisation.
Applications are now open. Deadline is 15th June 2016.
