Only the best and the brightest practitioners in the field are chosen to become Fellows. Those who are selected receive a month of valuable training and a $6,000 stipend. The curriculum is delivered by a faculty of global experts who work closely with each carefully selected cohort of Fellows to explore new ways to apply market-based approaches to environmental issues.
The 2022 Fellowship will take place from June 25 through July 26, 2022 in Bellingham, Washington, U.S.A.
