Description

The International Tropical Timber Organization (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.

The ITTO Fellowship Programme encourages capacity development of women foresters, and has supported 406 women to undertake fellowship activities, accounting for more than 30% of the total number of fellowships.

The maximum amount for a fellowship grant is US$10,000. Only nationals of ITTO member countries are eligible to apply, and fellowships are awarded mainly to nationals of developing countries.
