Russell E. Train Fellowships support individuals pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree in conservation and related fields. Each year, WWF supports committed conservation leaders and scientists from target countries to receive financial support for their studies and research.
The 2023 Russell E. Train Fellowships include:
Food is Local Fellowship
EFN invites applications from the current and next generation of researchers and practitioners. To pursue graduate-level studies (master’s and PhDs) geared towards research that cultivates a better understanding of the place-based nature of food system transformation. (Russell E. Train Fellowships 2023)
There is substantial evidence at the global scale of the urgent need for food system transformation. But less attention has been paid to how transformations toward more healthy and sustainable food systems might play out at the national level. This includes an understanding of the social, political, cultural, economic, as well as environmental dimensions of such a transformation in different countries and contexts.
The aim of the fellowship is to support individuals to develop evidence-based, innovative, and interdisciplinary research on food system transformation at the national level to build a better understanding of the country specific actions that need to be taken to transform food systems to improve human health and foster environmental sustainability. This research will catalyze the process of generating an improved understanding of the country-specific nature of food system transformation with a focus on the strategies that will support national and global efforts to create a more sustainable food future. (Russell E. Train Fellowships 2023)
- Applicants may apply for up to two years of funding and request up to $30,000 per year. The amount will vary.
Enhancing Capacity for Current and Aspiring University Faculty Fellowship
To strengthen local capacity in Asia, Africa, and Latin America and Caribbean, WWF’s Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) seeks to support current and aspiring faculty members to pursue PhD degrees in-country, regionally, or globally.
WWF’s Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) provides funding support to current and aspiring university faculty that are affiliated with or currently employed at African, Asian, and Latin American and Caribbean universities. This opportunity is for doctoral degree study in natural and social science and other conservation-related fields. Strong university faculty is fundamental for effective exchange of knowledge, expertise and skills, and leadership. Faculty members inspire and mentor students, design curricula, promote learning and ideas sharing, leads and collaborate on research, and disseminate scientific outcomes.
The objective of this competitive fellowship is to advance the development of a critical mass of outstanding and well-trained experts, natural and social scientists, and practitioners. Who will continue to increase the learning, research, and engagement in conservation science and leadership.
