This Edge fellowship programme provides structured training to early-career conservation biologists to undertake an applied research or conservation project on a local EDGE species.
The programme is more than just a source of funding. In addition to receiving a grant of up to £8,000, EDGE Fellows attend two regional training courses; undertake
online modules in relevant topics; and receive one-to-one support from a scientific advisor based at ZSL or a partner organization.

Applicants must: 
  • Focus their work on a top 100 EDGE species. Species outside the top 100 will not be considered;
  • Be an early-career conservation biologist or wildlife manager (less than 10 years’ experience);
  • Be a national and resident of the country in which the proposed focal species occurs.

Priority will be given to projects focusing on EDGE species where limited research has been done and/or that currently receives little or no conservation attention. We encourage applicants to discuss their projects with us before applying, and are happy to give feedback on a draft of the application.

If you choose to submit a draft, the deadline is Sunday 31st May.

The application deadline is 15th June 2015.
