At the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation, we’re facing a unique opportunity. Through a mix of education and targeted research, we’re gaining a better understanding of the natural world and finding new ways to protect it.

Our scholarship programs make it possible for qualified applicants, both domestic and international, to pursue training that will help them become leaders in the next generation of conservation professionals.

Our fellowships fund innovative research for graduate students who want to expand their knowledge across a wide spectrum of conservation issues.
