Latin America Darwin Scholarship Programme to be held at REGUA

“It was impossible to wish for anything more delightful than thus to spend some weeks in so magnificent a country. In England any person fond of natural history enjoys in his walks a great advantage, by always having something to attract his attention; but in these fertile climates, teeming with life, the attractions are so numerous, that he is scarcely able to walk at all.” Charles Darwin, April 1832

The Latin America Darwin Scholarship Programme, organized by the Field Studies Council in the UK, will be held at REGUA this September.

The course is aimed at under 35 year olds enrolled on a university biology degree around the world. If you are interested in biology and ecology you are invited to participate in a week long course that will touch all the branches of natural sciences.

If you would like to share in a programme aimed at developing better naturalists in the spirit of Darwin’s love of nature and observing the natural world, this is the opportunity.

The scholarship will focus on three areas: skills of observation and identification, skills of recording biodiversity, and skills of communicating biodiversity to different target groups. It will be an opportunity to work alongside leading scientists and educators in Brazil in a privileged conservation project, to network, and take back a unique experience.

The Field Studies Council is offering a limited number of bursaries of 550 GBP to successful applicants.
