The Zoological Society of London's EDGE of Existence programme (www.edgeofexistence.org<http://www.edgeofexistence.org/>)
is the only global conservation initiative focusing specifically on
threatened species that represent a significant amount of unique
evolutionary history. One of the most effective ways in which the
programme is working to secure the future of EDGE species is by awarding
two-year Fellowships to future conservation leaders ("EDGE Fellows")
working on poorly-known EDGE mammal, amphibian or coral species. We are
now accepting applications for the 2014-16 Fellowship Programme.
EDGE Fellows follow a comprehensive two-year training programme comprising:
A 4-week Conservation Tools training course at the beginning of the
programme to provide Fellows with essential training in techniques to
plan and implement their project;
· A grant of £10,000 to undertake a 2-year project on a top-priority EDGE species;
Ongoing technical support/mentoring (achieved via online modules,
web-based tutorials/seminars, and field visits) throughout the
· A 2-week Conservation Leadership training course in London
on successful completion of Fellowship to help Fellows prepare for the
next stage of their career.
The application form, guidelines, and eligibility criteria are available to download on the EDGE of Existence website (http://www.edgeofexistence.org/conservation/fellows.php) or can be requested from the EDGE Fellows Co-ordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>).
We strongly encourage applicants to discuss their projects with us
before applying, and are happy to give feedback on a draft of the
application before the deadline.
The next application deadline is 31st March 2014. All applications
will be reviewed by a panel of experts. Successful applicants will be
informed by July 2014.
