Kinship Fellows

Community of leaders.
Connection. Collaboration. Impact.

Kinship is for highly motivated achievers.

Each summer, 18 Fellows—selected from hundreds of applicants around the world—come together with Kinship faculty to create a learning experience that crosses geographic and disciplinary boundaries. What's more, they become part of a supportive, inspiring community that expands their outreach and potential.

With 210 fellows in 48 countries, representing six continents, our community grows stronger every year. As a Fellow, you'll forge lasting professional and personal relationships as you collaborate with like-minded colleagues working together to change the future of conservation practice.

For articles written by Fellows about market-based mechanisms in conservation, visit The Kinship Lens, the Kinship Conservation Fellows blog.

"Kinship is a rare chance to be surrounded by intelligent and dedicated individuals whose passion is as admirable as the challenge of discrediting the notion of success being at the expense of the environment."

- Chad Brealey, Canadian Freshwater Alliance, Canada
2002 Fellow
