Global Environmental Leadership Fellows

Global Environmental Leadership Fellows pursue world-class research to develop solutions to pressing global issues, such as land use and ecosystem management, global food security, freshwater resources, climate change adaptation, emerging diseases and links between population & development. Fellowships focus on three core areas: land use, ecosystem change, agriculture & food security; freshwater systems and water security; and the intersection of environment, population and development.

Application Process

Global Environmental Leadership Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. The current request for applications is closed. We will announce future competitions via IonE’s e-newsletter and website. Please check back for future opportunities.
