The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) is now accepting applications for their Fellowship Program.

ITTO offers fellowships through the Freezailah Fellowship Fund to promote human resource development and to strengthen professional expertise in member countries in tropical forestry and related disciplines. The goal is to promote the sustainable management of tropical forests, the efficient use and processing of tropical timber, and better economic information about the international trade in tropical timber.

Only nationals of ITTO member countries are eligible to apply, and fellowships are awarded mainly to nationals of developing member countries.

The maximum amount for a fellowship grant is US$10,000. The deadline for applications is August 21, 2015.
