SCB Graduate Student Research Fellowship Awards

SCB allocates awards funding to support ten graduate student members whose research advances the science and practice of conserving biological diversity. 

The fellowship is designed to support graduate students who need assistance with costs toward field expenses in order to complete their degree. 

The SCB Global Awards Committee administers the Graduate Student Research Fellowship Awards and evaluates applicants on merit and with respect to geographic, topical, gender and other aspects of conservation diversity. 

Graduate Student Research Fellowship Awards will support field work, including travel, materials or equipment required to conduct research by graduate students.

Students must demonstrate financial need toward completion of graduate degree and graduate research must contribute to SCB’s mission to advance the science and practice of conserving Earth's biodiversity.

Applications for the 2022 Graduate Student Research Fellowship Awards are no longer being accepted—an official announcement of the 2022 award winners will be made in mid August. See Graduate Student Research Award winners from 2020 and 2019
