Darwin Initiative Fellowship Awards

A Darwin Fellowship Award provides funding to a UK host organisation to enable promising individuals from developing countries to come to the UK for a period of training or research.

Eligible Candidates
The host organisation where the individual will carry out the training or research must be in the UK.

The individual would usually be:
  • from a developing country
  • involved in a recent or current Darwin Initiative project; or
  • directly involved in the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species or the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture; and
  • working in biodiversity or related fields

Funding available
There is no specific minimum or maximum level for a Fellowship Award. On average a typical Darwin Fellowship award is around £20,000-£25,000 and covers a period of training in the UK of around 12 months.

Application deadline: 7 November 2016
