Appalachian Trail Community Conservation Innovator Fellowship
Appalachian Trail Conservancy
The inaugural launch of the Community Conservation Innovator Fellowship Program is to build solutions to today’s pressing environmental challenges in the Appalachian Trail Landscape using science, partnership, and community engagement. The topical focus of the 2024 Fellowship is Community-led Collaborative Conservation. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) invites graduate-level students or equivalent lived experiences to apply to the Community Conservation Innovators Fellowship Program to provide the initial research and programmatic development strategies to position the launch of a new conservation-focused initiative within ATC’s Appalachian Trail Community program. ATC seeks to build capacity and empower designated A.T. Communities and other trailside communities to plan for smart, sustainable growth while preserving natural ecosystems.

This fellowship aims to provide a 12-month experience, embedded within ATC’s Landscape Conservation Program to provide program planning assistance through exploratory research and community engagement. It is expected that the Fellow will have the opportunity to build skills and experience working with rural Appalachian communities, conservation partners, and outdoor recreation professionals to gain insight to how community-led conservation can be implemented at a local level and impact communities and ecosystems throughout Appalachia.

The Fellow will be responsible for leading the preparatory research and analysis phase to developing the road map to launching new, innovative, and effective program initiatives and services that will support capacity-building among community partners and foster more regional collaboration and greater access to funding for community-led conservation projects.
