Final Opportunity to Apply for the Pacific Ocean Finance Fellowship Program

The Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) and the Office of the Pacific Ocean Commissioner (OPOC) - in partnership with Conservation Strategy Fund, the Conservation Finance Alliance and the Wildlife Conservation Society - are pleased to expand the number of countries eligible to apply for the Pacific Ocean Finance Fellowship. The goal of the fellowship program is to strengthen Pacific regional capacity in financing for improved ocean governance and health. 

Citizens or permanent residents of Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, Tokelau, Papua New Guinea, and Niue, and Vanuatu are eligible. The fellowship program will select up to 15 fellows for this first cohort.

This fellowship is partially funded through the Pacific Ocean Finance Program, which is Component 3 of the Pacific Regional Oceanscape Program (PROP) - funded by World Bank and Global Environment Facility - and implemented through FFA and OPOC. The aim of the Pacific Ocean Finance Program is to improve the amount and efficacy of finance for Pacific Ocean governance.

FFA and OPOC will provide funding for successful applicants from non-World Bank member countries (Cook Islands, Tokelau, Papua New Guinea, and Niue.)


The deadline to apply is May 10th, 2019. Click here for more information.
