Conservation fellows program announces request for proposals

The Center for Collaborative Conservation (CCC) at Colorado State University (CSU) invites both individual and team applications for its Collaborative Conservation Fellowship Program, Cohort 11.

The Fellows Program

Since 2008, the Center for Collaborative Conservation’s Fellows Program has challenged and encouraged students, faculty and practitioners to work together to help local communities sustain their livelihoods and conserve their landscapes. Fellows work across disciplinary, landscape, cultural, and administrative boundaries to find innovative solutions to conservation issues through on-the-ground projects in the United States and around the world.

Fellowship projects for this cohort may be any conservation topic in any geographic location.

Who Can Apply

We accept applications from:

1) Practitioners: people who use, own, or manage natural resources as individuals (like landowners, ranchers, foresters, farmers) or who work professionally as part of tribal nations, the private sector, NGOs, government and state agencies and other entities

2) CSU graduate students from all CSU colleges and departments

3) CSU faculty, research scientists, post docs, and extension agents from all CSU colleges and departments

The CCC is strongly committed to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts of Warner College of Natural Resources. The Fellows Program seeks to increase the diversity and representation of our fellows to provide deeper cultural learning among the cohort, and increase collaborative research, education and practice opportunities for underserved communities.  In addition, we recognize that COVID-19 has disproportionately affected people and communities of color and those with limited financial resources. As such, we encourage applications from individuals who identify as belonging to an underrepresented group, and projects that focus on underserved communities.

Deadline and Application Materials

The deadline for applications is November 2, 2020. For more information about the Fellows Program please go to:
