Darwin Fellowships are targeted at promising members of recent or current Darwin Initiative projects who are from countries rich in biodiversity but poor in financial resources.
Drawing on expertise in biodiversity, the programme aims to give Fellows the opportunity to broaden their skills in biodiversity, typically by working towards formal qualifications or by developing policy skills.
