The Darwin Initiative Fellowship Awards funding is aimed at building capacity in developing countries. The Fellowship programme is intended to support Fellows to draw on UK technical and scientific expertise in the fields of biodiversity and sustainable development to broaden their knowledge and experience.
- Area: Biodiversity and sustainable development.
- Number of awards: Not specified.

Eligible costs (depending on the nature of the Fellowship) include a monthly subsistence, Lead organisation expenses, travel costs and fees for academic qualifications.
Applications for the Darwin Initiative Fellowship Awards should come from an organisation (the Lead Organisation) and not an individual. There should be a named individual within the Lead Organisation responsible for the application, called the Project Leader. The host organisation where the individual will carry out the training or research must be in the UK.
The Lead Organisation:
- must have expertise in natural resource management
- can be either a public or private sector organisation
- should provide experts from within the organisation with a proven track record and at the forefront of their discipline(s) to work closely with or supervise the Fellow. This expertise is typically expected to be a minimum of 10 years of relevant experience
Darwin Fellowships will support promising individuals who:
- have a link with a recent or current Darwin Initiative project or
- are currently involved directly in the implementation of the key biodiversity conventions and agreements listed above
