Graduate Student Fellowships:

We offer two types of fully-funded graduate fellowships for students interested in conservation of plants and animals. Both provide students with recruitment and repatriation airfares, a stipend, a tuition fee waiver, and the opportunity to apply for competitive research funds. Fellows will be enrolled in UMSL's PhD or MS graduate degree programs and participate in special workshops or internships designed to increase the Fellow’s capacity to make an impact in conservation following graduation.
