> UNEP-WCMC CHEVENING SCHOLARSHIPS IN BIODIVERSITY
> The UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre, in collaboration
> with the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office, has the honour to
> offer six UNEP-WCMC Chevening Scholarships in Biodiversity,
> beginning September 2002. The scheme will draw scholars from
> all regions of the world to work for one year at the Centre in
> Cambridge. They will analyse an aspect of biodiversity conservation
> and sustainable management relevant to the policy needs of their
> region. This will contribute to various UNEP global assessments
> and support the implementation of the Convention on Biological
> Diversity and other environmental agreements.
> Aims: This scheme aims to help young researchers to prepare
> for a role in national and regional policy development and
> decision-making to resolve biodiversity-related challenges. With
> support from the Centre's staff they will select a subject for analysis
> and publish recommendations for action over a period of one year,
> from September 2002.
> Eligibility: One scholar will be drawn from each of six regions:
> Africa, Asia & the Pacific, Europe, Latin America & the Caribbean,
> North America, and West Asia. Candidates must be under 35 years
> of age, be fluent in English (IELTS band 7 or above), hold a good
> degree, and preferably also a postgraduate degree, in a biological or
> environmental science. The Centre does not award formal
> qualifications and the scheme is not primarily intended for those
> seeking higher degrees.
> Funding: Each scholarship is currently worth £8,812 per annum,
> including all allowances (under review). In addition one economy
> class air fare to and from the UK will be paid and a small sum is
> available for local travel. The UK Chevening Scholarships
> Programme and private sector sponsors support the scheme.
> Subject areas: Applicants are free to propose biodiversity-related
> subjects of particular interest to their region, and successful
> candidates will be encouraged to bring supporting information
> resources. However, potential subjects currently of interest to
> UNEP-WCMC include: great apes and bushmeat; aquarium trade;
> conservation of sharks and turtles; transboundary protected areas;
> dryland conservation; tourism & biodiversity; climate change and
> conservation policy; and mountain conservation. All studies will
> be based in Cambridge and there will be no opportunities for fieldwork.
> How to apply: Candidates should apply on the Chevening
> Scholarships form attaching a c.v., publications list and covering
> letter explaining why they wish to spend a year at the Centre.
> Application forms are available from, and should be submitted
