Fellows are provided with two- and three-year research opportunities in either population and ecosystem dynamics or marine resource economics.
The best thing about the fellowship for me was how flexible the funding was. I was able to travel as the circumstances of my research required and research South African sea turtles. This diversity of research will be extremely useful and it distinguishes this fellowship from typical doctoral fellowships.
