The Fur-Bearers has launched a scholarship program to promote wildlife coexistence through artistic creation and scientific research.

As human and non-human animal environments have become inextricably linked, it is vital that we continue to find innovative ways to live peacefully among wild animals and develop non-lethal alternatives in addressing perceived human-animal conflict. Part of this also includes creating wildlife-minded communities and amplifying the message of coexistence within our society.

The scholarship has two streams: an arts stream, and a science stream.

Two recipients will be awarded the scholarship in 2021: one recipient for the arts stream and one recipient for the science stream. At the discretion of the Scholarship Evaluation Committee, if strong applications are submitted in one of the two streams, two scholarships may be awarded in that stream for that year.

Learn more about eligibility and criteria for the two streams or submit your application on our Scholarships page (click here!).

These scholarships are funded by donations from people like you. Learn more about donating or becoming a monthly donor here.
