Young Conservation Leaders Award
In celebration of our 40th anniversary in 2022 we launched a new award initiative.
The Conservation Foundation’s Young Conservation Leaders Award aims to support the growth of a new generation of conservation leaders by providing a one-off financial grant to help enable young people to take up learning and development opportunities irrespective of their financial circumstances. The scheme seeks to support candidates with a demonstrable track-record of academic excellence and leadership in the field of conservation at Masters level or above. Disadvantaged candidates will be prioritised.
For the first two years of the award we have partnered with Exeter University’s Marine Environmental Management and Marine Vertebrate Ecology and Conservation MSc programmes.To view this years recipients of the YCLA awards please click here and to view the recipients of the 2022 YCLA awards please click here.
