The Ravi Sankaran Fellowship Program funds three major activities
The Program will fund one or two students to work towards a 1-2 yr Masters degree in a reputed academic program in ecology or conservation.
The purpose of this Fellowship is to train the student recipients in the science and/or implementation of conservation; and to facilitate interaction with the larger international community involved in conservation science and practice.
The Program will fund one or two recipients to carry out an internship of 6 weeks to 1 year with a university research group, NGO, government agency, or other organisation, known for its work in conservation science and practice in a country other than India.
The purpose of the internship is for recipients of the fellowship to gain experience and insight in field ecology and conservation beyond what they would ordinarily gather from an academic degree program; and to facilitate interaction with the larger international community involved in conservation science and implementation.
Small Grants Program
The Program will fund up to 5 recipients to carry out an initial project of up to 1 yr that is expected to lead to a longer-term conservation science and/or implementation project
Where appropriate, applicants for a small grant are encouraged to consider and include the potential role that local communities can play in conservation.
Masters and Internship fellows are not eligible for project/research funding.
