WWF Prince Bernhard Scholarships aims to provide financial support to individuals who wish to pursue short-term professional training or formal studies that will help them contribute more effectively to conservation efforts in their country. Each scholarship empowers a dedicated conservationist to build his or her capacity. In turn, these people are in a position to share the benefits of their knowledge and skills with others and so spread the benefits.
The Prince Bernhard Scholarships are:
- Enabling – help people be more effective to achieve conservation
- Developmental – nurture scholars to become conservation leaders
- Multiplying – inspire graduates to train others
The maximum amount for any one scholarship under this scheme is CHF 10,000, and preferential consideration is given to requests for less than CHF 10,000.
Who should apply?
- As a priority, the PBS support mid-career training (up to a maximum of one year) for individuals working in the field of conservation or associated disciplines directly relevant to the delivery and promotion of conservation.

- Only nationals from Africa, Asia/Pacific, Latin America & Caribbean, Eastern Europe & Middle East will be considered, including WWF staff or candidates working as partners with WWF.
