Kinship Conservation invites the best and the brightest practitioners in their field to its Fellowship opportunity. The curriculum is delivered by a faculty of global experts who work closely with each carefully selected cohort of Fellows to explore new ways to apply market-based approaches to environmental issues. Using a case study methodology, Fellows will identify new solutions to real-life conservation challenges. Over the course of the month, Fellows attend dynamic sessions, participate in collaborative and independent projects, and attend field trips. Kinship Fellows will join a community of practitioners, where they continue to network and collaborate to address environmental challenges. The global network of 282 Fellows in 51 countries across 7 continents is collaborative, innovative, and dedicated to effective conservation. Fellows bring home new ideas, tools, and inspiration. Their success benefits their organizations and the greater conservation community.


  1. You must have at least five years of on the ground experience, which are deeply committed to conservation, involved with the implementation of market-based approaches to solve environmental problems, and ready to be part of an expanding community of global leaders.
  2. You should have a proposed project describing an environmental issue related to the applicant's work and the plans to develop a solution using market approaches.
  3. You should be familiar with business and economic principles and work in a setting where these principles can be integrated with conservation work. 18 applicants are selected to participate in the training program.
  4. Possess a minimum of a four-year U.S. college degree (or its equivalent).
  5. Be proficient in spoken and written English.
  6. Be a conservation practitioner (rather than an academic or researcher).
  7. Applicants who meet the above requirements will be evaluated in the following areas:
  • Proposed project viability and appropriateness.
  • Leadership potential.
  • Potential contribution at the Fellowship program and ongoing membership in the Fellows Community.


If you are accepted at this fellowship opportunity, you will receive a month of valuable training and a $6,000 stipend.
