Center for Collaborative Conservation fellows program request for proposals now open  

The Center for Collaborative Conservation at Colorado State University is now inviting both individual and team applications for its Collaborative Conservation Fellowship Program, Cohort 12 with a submission deadline of Nov. 2, 2021.

The CCC encourages applications with an emphasis on at least one of the four following criteria:

  1. Projects led by individuals who identify as belonging to an underrepresented or marginalized group.
  2. Projects focused on underserved and marginalized communities and tribal and ancestral lands.
  3. Projects centered on private land issues.
  4. International projects that focus on rangelands.

The Center for Collaborative Conservation promotes working collaboratively with diverse stakeholders to address conservation issues on public, private and indigenous lands across Colorado, the western United States and the world. Fellows find innovative and locally driven solutions to conservation problems by directly involving communities and practitioners in all aspects of their on-the-ground projects.
