Applications for the Russell E.Train Fellowships 2022 are now open. To build capacity across the Pacific, Atlantic, and the Indian Ocean, WWF’s Education for Nature Program (EFN) invites applications from current and aspiring conservation leaders to enable them to pursue graduate-level studies (masters and PhDs) geared towards bridging the gap in the capacity of countries to deliver the goals of BE development.

The aim of the fellowship is to support individuals to develop evidence-based, innovative, and interdisciplinary research on the ‘Role of Gender Equity in achieving sustainable Blue Economy outcomes, with emphasis on small scale fisheries and tropical ecosystems. It is WWF’s belief that the outcome of this support goes beyond educational achievements by the beneficiaries and translates into equity in participation in policy and governance frameworks that are related to ocean science and policy in support of the Blue Economy.
