  • PhD students - competitive scholarships based upon academic ability, scientific credibility and significance of the research for natural resource management.
  • Senior Research Fellows - designed to ‘free up’ a select few leading researchers to produce reflective, synthesis research.
  • Community Fellows - From 2001 - 2004 we funded more than 25 people who have worked within communities to tell their stories about living sustainably. They used  their community fellowships to write about, speak on or show people their work.
