Short Course Scholarships

IHE Delft does not grant any partial or full scholarships, but there are a number of scholarships for one, two and three week courses which are offered by other organizations. 

EFN Professional Development Grants

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) knows that investing in training and education is critical for biodiversity conservation. That's why for over two decades the Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) has been providing financial support to proven and potential conservation leaders in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to gain the skills and knowledge they need to address the conservation challenges in their home countries. EFN supports conservationists to pursue short-term training courses, and train local communities in WWF priority places.

Professional Development Grants (PDGs) provide support for mid-career conservationists to pursue short-term, non-degree training to upgrade their knowledge and skills. These trainings can include short courses, certificate trainings, or conferences among other training opportunities.

PDGs support training-related costs, including registration fees and tuition, meals and accommodations, books and materials, international travel, visa fees, and local transportation.

Application process

All applicants must complete an application by one of the deadlines noted below. The proposed training must take place at least 90 days after the application deadline to allow EFN time for review, selection and processing of the grant.

Upcoming deadlines:

May 1, 2019
August 1, 2019

Individuals may submit an online application at the WWF at any time. Completed applications will be reviewed on the dates noted above, and applicants will be notified of the results within one month after the application deadline. Please note: PDGs are highly competitive. Meeting the minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee you will receive a grant.
