WWF KATHRYN FULLER FELLOWSHIP

WWF KATHRYN FULLER FELLOWSHIP
Sponsored By : THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND

The Fuller Fellowships support early-career, post-doctoral scientists pursuing research of extraordinary importance and relevance to conservation. Fuller Fellowships link these scientists and their research to on-the-ground conservation work through WWF’s global network of conservation scientists and practitioners.

Fuller Fellows are provided with stipend and a research budget, and are co-advised by both academic and WWF mentors. Depending on the project, Fellows can be based at a research institution, at WWF, or in the field. Fuller Fellows also attend the annual Science for Nature Symposia, where they can interact with leaders in science, policy, and conservation and discuss emerging issues and challenges in conservation science.

Fellows become part of the WWF global network of results-driven scientists and conservationists. They will have access to minds and resources that are dedicated to bringing the best ideas to bear on the critical task of conserving the diversity and abundance of life on Earth. And they have the opportunity to link their research to this ongoing effort, and see their ideas put into practice.
