The Kleinhans Fellowship for Community Forestry Research awards $20,000/year for two years for graduate- or postdoc-level research that seeks solutions to the challenges faced by the community forestry model. We welcome applications for research that addresses one of the following four themes: - Markets for the lesser-known species and non-timber forest products that community forest enterprises (CFEs) produce; - The feasibility of implementing biodiversity management practices at the CFE level; - Innovative, replicable solutions to problems CFEs face in social organization and governance; or - Creating more effective multi-community enterprises. Researchers of any nationality may apply; however, field work must occur in Latin America. See http://www.rainforest-alliance.org/fellowships for complete application guidelines.
