African Elephant Scholarship – An Opportunity to Help Protect Elephants and Wildlife

Mara Elephant Project is a conservation organization based in Kenya whose mission is to protect elephants and their habitats across the greater Mara ecosystem. Last year they announced a new scholarship opportunity for a Kenyan student – The Fran Duthie African Elephant Conservation Scholarship.

Fran Duthie and family are loyal supporters of Mara Elephant Project. Fran has served alongside Dr. Jake Wall as the co-founder of Elephanatics, a Canadian elephant advocacy organization. MEP with support from Fran is passionate about building local capacity to foster the next generation of Kenyan conservation heroes.

This scholarship is intended for students pursuing conservation or a related field. The goal of this scholarship is to provide financial support to Kenyan nationals acquiring a technical certificate, undergraduate or postgraduate (Masters or PhD) degree in an area related to conservation and the protection of wildlife. Alongside the financial support, this scholarship will provide practical experience to the scholar during the course of their studies by undertaking an internship with the Mara Elephant Project for at least one month during the scholarship period. The scholarship must be used at an accredited college or university in a subject area related to conservation and the protection of wildlife and their habitats. The scholarship may be used to cover academic tuition fees and associated living costs.

Application dates will be determined by Mara Elephant Project. Contact them for more information at: maraelephantproject.org

With Giving Tuesday soon approaching, November 28th, please consider a donation today (“note in the comments under Donate “scholarship”) to support Kenyans preparing for a career in conservation, buff.ly/3WNTgH8.
