International Fellowship Programme in Portland – apply now!
Applicants are now being accepted for the 2016 World Forest Institute International Fellowship Programme at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Oregon, USA.
The award-winning WFI Fellowship programme brings professionals in natural resources to conduct a practical research project at the World Forestry Center. In addition to projects, Fellows participate in weekly field trips, interviews and site visits to Northwest forestry organisations, research labs, universities, public and private timberlands, trade associations, mills, and corporations.
The Fellowship is a unique opportunity to learn about sustainable forestry from the Pacific Northwest forestry sector, and to work with colleagues from around the world. Fellowships are open to any country, including U.S. citizens. The Fellowship programme offers partial scholarships through the Harry A. Merlo Foundation, but most applicants need to cover at least 50% of the programme fee. There is a special European Scholarship for 2016. Over 100 Fellows from 30 countries have participated to date. The term is six to 12 months, and the application deadline for the 2016 programme is December 31, 2015.
