Two bursaries are currently available for undergraduates, postgraduates, or those who have recently undertaken a relevant vocational programme of study who are seeking to progress a career in ecology or environmental management. Each bursary is worth up to £2000 (or euro equivalent) and the deadline for applications is 1st November 2019.
The bursaries are designed to help recipients develop their knowledge and skills in key areas of ecological and environmental competence, building on their academic learning. The bursary sum is available to be spent over a maximum 2–year period.
The bursaries can be used in a number of ways, including:
- Attending relevant training courses, conferences and related events (e.g. Summer Schools, field trips).
- Purchasing relevant equipment.
- Costs associated with gaining relevant unpaid work experience (but not internships or apprenticeships which should be paid by the employer).
- Undertaking research projects.
Applicants must be current (in your final year) or recent students who are not in paid, full-time employment in the sector. Applicants who completed their studies some time ago but have not been able to find relevant paid permanent employment will also be considered.
Recipients will have their CIEEM Student or Qualifying membership subscription covered for up to two years.
To apply for a bursary please download and complete the Bursary Application Form which asks you to set out your background, your career aspirations, and how you would use a bursary to achieve your goals. This should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before the 1st November 2019.
All eligible applications will be reviewed by a decision panel and all applicants will be notified of the outcome in December 2019.
We particularly welcome applications from members of BAME communities.
