The Mountain Sentinels Collaborative Network invites applications for a Mountain Sentinels Fellowship Program.

Deadline to apply is 9 August 2020.

The Fellows Program will support 10-15 individuals living or working in a mountain community significantly impacted by COVID-19.

Fellows will conduct a project focused on improving social and environmental health and well-being in a mountain community impacted by COVID-19. 

The program seeks applicants who are under-served and/or under-represented in science.

The program expects to form a group of Fellows who represent diverse ages, career stages, and sectors (e.g. researchers, non-researchers, educators, individuals across different industries and organizations, community members) worldwide.

The Fellowship will run for one year, beginning 1 September, 2020.

What the Fellowship Provides

Each Fellow will receive $1,500 USD. Fellows will be invited to participate in the following activities (they are expected to choose at least one):

  • One-on-one mentorship with a member of Mountain Sentinels
  • Monthly virtual gatherings amongst the Fellows cohort
  • Participation in the 2021 Moving Mountains Summit (likely virtual)


Fellows' Projects

Fellows should propose a project focused on improving social and environmental sustainability in mountains, especially as they see opportunities created by COVID.

Fellows will be responsible for a final product such as a report, blog, video diary, photos, art, or other materials to communicate the outcomes of their project. These final products will be shared publicly on the Mountain Sentinels website
