The Russell E. Train Fellowships help anyone who wants to study conservation and allied subjects for a master's or doctoral degree. Every year, WWF helps devoted scientists and leaders in conservation from the target countries obtain funding for their work.

To pursue graduate-level studies (master's and PhDs) targeted toward research that fosters a greater understanding of the place-based character of food system change, EFN invites proposals from the current and next generation of academics and practitioners.
