International Fellowships Available at the World Forest Institute, Oregon, USA
Closing date: 11 April 2008
The World Forest Institute Fellowship Program brings forestry and natural resources professionals from around the world to work at the World Forest Institute for 6 to 12 months. Fellows conduct an independent research project developed in conjunction with his/her sponsor.
Projects are typically either policy or marketing studies, and may be environmental, social or economic in focus. Activities involve information gathering through interviews, meeting with forestry organisations, and taking organised field trips. Fellows typically summarise their projects in a report and poster published by the WFI. A large component of the program involves traveling and visiting with professionals in the Pacific Northwest forest sector.
Fellows visit forestlands, research sites, manufacturing facilities, and NGOs. Additionally, Fellows gain valuable cultural experience and English language skills. Project proposals are now being accepted, and a matching grant is available to cover up to half of the Fellowship fee. WFI is located in beautiful Portland, Oregon, a short drive to forests, mountains, beach, and desert. Oregon is the largest producer of forest products among the 50 US states.
