15 February 2017: Bill Raynor Scholarship Deadline Extended to March 31, 2017

The establishment of the Bill Raynor Micronesia Challenge Scholarship Fund was inspired by the work of one of Micronesia’s lead conservation pioneers, William Charles Raynor, known to many as Bill Raynor. The Bill Raynor Micronesia Challenge Scholarship Fund aims to contribute to the development of effective conservation of Micronesia’s biodiversity and the promotion of sustainable livelihoods across the region. This scholarship provides an opportunity for individuals from Micronesia to undertake either a Master’s or Doctorate degrees in any resource management/conservation field at various institutions within the Pacific Region to include universities in Guam, Hawaii, Fiji, Japan, New Zealand or Australia.

This year’s application deadline has been extended and MCT will accept applications until Friday, March 31st 2017. Review of applications and the selection of awardees will be held from 1st April to 30th of May.
