Have you considered applying to the MSc in Primate Conservation at Oxford Brookes University? We offer a fee-waiver scholarship to offer holders with significant experience working in primate habitat countries! Past recipients of the award include Josia Razafindramanana, who was presented the Whitley Award for inspirational conservation leadership in 2012 following her work to protect a rare lemur recently found living at scattered sites in the island’s central highlands.
The award recognises Josia’s efforts as part of the Malagasy Primate Working Group to build a better future for one of the most elusive of Madagascar’s unique lemurs – the crowned sifaka – while also improving living standards for the communities who share its home amid fragments of forest.
Her Whitley Award comprises a project grant of £30,000 – donated by The LJC Fund, in memory of Anthea and Lindsey Turner – an engraved trophy, membership of the influential network of past Whitley Award winners and career development training. Find out more about our MSc and funding available here:
