Osa Conservation invites applicants to the 2021 Ugalde-Forsyth Fellowship in Tropical Ecology, Restoration, and Conservation.
We are seeking innovative and ambitious early career scientists and graduate level students who are interested in researching the next big topics in tropical ecology, restoration, and conservation; and the best ways to tell the story of habitat and biodiversity conservation. If you want to live and work at our Osa Conservation Campus for 6 months in the heart of Osa Peninsula’s rainforest, in Costa Rica’s southern Pacific region, then we welcome you to apply.
While we have provided a list of Osa Conservation’s research focus areas on our website, the research possibilities for fellows are only limited by the applicant’s creativity. Pitch your idea, we are excited to hear from you.
Fellows will live at our Piro Biological Research Station in the Osa Peninsula near Puerto Jimenez. The scholarships are valued at $14,000 and the 6-month fellowships can start in July 2021. The exact start dates are flexible (earlier start dates will be given preference). All you need to do to apply is send your CV, a 1-page project proposal, and a short video (maximum 3 minutes long) explaining why you and your project are the best choices for this fellowship to email@example.com. Use the subject line “Ugalde-Forsyth Fellowship”.
