The CLiC Fellows Program (May 2017-November 2018) helps jump-start early career conservation professionals through a combination of skills training, networking opportunities and the completion of a leadership conservation initiative that provides real benefits to imperiled species, ecosystems and landscapes in the Wider-Caribbean Region (WCR). CLiC training addresses a long-standing need for competent leaders from the WCR in the international conservation field who are equipped with a full set of skills to launch well-rounded and successful conservation programs and build successful leadership careers in environmental conservation professions.
Successful applicants in this competitive fellowship process meet minimum qualification as follows: are citizens of the WCR, have worked in the natural resources conservation field for at least three years and plan to work at least 15 additional years (preferably in the Caribbean region), can commit to devoting at least 10-12 hours per month to a CLiC conservation project, can fully participate in all online and in-person training courses/workshops/modules and submits all application materials on time (see left: send CV, Letter of Reference and Supervisor Approval Form together in a single email to the address provided).
In-person training requires accepted participants to travel and work for approximately 20 days divided into two estimated ten-day periods. Following completion of the online application (follow link to the left), your employer (or current academic advisor if you are a student) must endorse this application with her/his signature on the form provided and submitted via email along with your CV and one letter of reference to complete this application.
Candidates from under-represented groups in conservation are strongly encouraged to apply. Accepted applicants will be notified by March 15th, 2017.
