The WCN Scholarship Program funds graduate education and applied training for community-based conservationists dedicated to working in their home countries. Our vision is that graduates of the Scholarship Program will become leaders in wildlife conservation. They will lead existing NGOs or start their own organizations, possibly even becoming WCN Partners. By working with local people as effective stewards of their environment, they will create a world in which wildlife and communities may co-exist and thrive.

Tuition and living expenses for the duration of the program, over and above funding from other sources (Scholarship awards range from $5,000 USD to $45,000 USD, with most awards in the $10,000- $20,000 range) Mentoring by the nominator of each scholarship recipient
