African Wildlife Conservation (AWF) Charles R. Wall Conservation Leadership and Management Fellowship 2024 Cohort

African Wildlife Conservation (AWF) is calling on eligible youths to apply for the Charles R. Wall Leadership Program

The program consists of two components – the Charles R. Wall Young African Policy Fellows, which is ushering in its third cohort, and the Charles R. Wall Conservation Leadership and Management Fellowship, which was revamped last year and is ready to take on its second cohort of leaders.

The program seeks to build a unified community of professionals from different sectors that are passionate about leaving an indelible mark in the world through conservation.

The Young African Policy Fellows Program is co-facilitated by AWF and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) focused on technical and practical policy-making skills guided by key International Environmental Governance bodies, especially the Convention on Biological Diversity, which is set to hold its 16th conference of the parties (COP) later this year in Columbia.

The inaugural Conservation Leadership and Management Fellowship is an AWF-led trailblazing pan-African leadership program for young African professionals in the conservation sector. With a keen focus on self-leadership, team leadership, and organizational leadership, this program brings together youth from government, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and community-based entities that are leading impact in the environment space.


African youths, aged 20-35 years, are encouraged to apply for either of the two training programs, which will include virtual workshops and a corresponding physical workshop in Nairobi, Kenya.


The fully-funded fellowship covers air travel, accommodation, and ground transport for in-person workshops in Nairobi. Additionally,

It provides a stipend for data bundles during virtual sessions and offers personalized coaching support for the innovation project.

Each applicant is expected to submit a motivation letter responding to why the candidate would like to be considered alongside a Curriculum Vitae and reference letter from the university, employer, or any senior person with whom they have worked closely with.
