The National Forest Foundation (NFF) invites master’s and doctoral students to apply to the Conservation Connect Fellowship Program. Conservation Connect Fellowships aim to build experience, knowledge, and skills within the next generation of collaborative and conservation leaders to support each other and advance the field. We are striving to build a cohort of emerging professionals who will go on to do important work with communities and public lands in the future! Do you want to match the knowledge you are acquiring through your academic work with practical, hands-on experience and contribute directly to collaborative stewardship of our National Forests? Here’s what you will gain by being a Conservation Connect Fellow: * Applied experience with conservation programs and projects through a practicum project. For example, depending on the project, fellows may conduct stakeholder assessments; facilitate collaborative efforts; coordinate and implement projects; support diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts; or develop strategic communications. * Mentoring from skilled conservation professionals at the NFF and other host organizations. * Trainings in collaborative conservation, facilitation practice, the roles of the National Environmental Policy Act and U.S. Forest Service, and other topics. * Real-world understanding of forest and public lands management. * An expanded personal and professional network. Fellowships include a summer 2023 or academic year 2023-2024 practicum, or some combination of the two, and may be at a specific location or virtual depending on the project. Fellows will be compensated at a rate of $18/hour for up to 360 hours over the one-year fellowship. The NFF will accept applications through February 5, 2023. Please see the Conservation Connect Fellows webpage for more information, including 2023 practicum project descriptions. The National Forest Foundation welcomes a diverse pool of applicants and maintains a policy of nondiscrimination.
Graduate students pursuing a master's degree or doctorate are eligible for the Conservation Connect Fellowship. Students must be enrolled in a graduate program during the 2023-2024 academic year. We anticipate students will have taken coursework related to the study of natural resources, conflict resolution, collaboration, non-profit management, communications, or other field related to the specific practicum.
