Post-Graduate Conservation Scholarships Available

Kruger Park News Archive

Competition will be stiff, but the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) currently has eight graduate scholarships available for students who wish to study towards a masters or doctoral degree in the conservation field. The money can be used at any institution in the world, but the intention is that students return to their own country to help in conservation.

Four WCS scholarships are open to anyone from any developing country or North American indigenous group, with no geographic or species restriction in the field of study. One scholarship is devoted to the study of tigers and/or their conservation, while another is for the study of any big cat anywhere in the world. Two other scholarships are earmarked solely for applicants from Africa.
