World Forest Institute Fellowship Program
The World Forest Institute (WFI) offers a unique International Fellowship Program to professionals in natural resources—such as foresters, environmental educators, land managers, NGO practioners and researchers—to conduct a practical research project at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.
Terra Viva Grants a new nonprofit information service for identifying where to look for grants in the "green sectors" of international development. The website includes profiles of about 300 grant makers worldwide in agriculture, energy, environment, and natural resources. The profiles of grant makers can be browsed in lists, or searched in a database to speed up filtering and comparison.
Users can search for grants made by foundations and NGOs, companies, government organizations, and international organizations. Grants are for technical assistance (development projects), education and capacity building, research, and prizes and awards.
Access to the full website is free. Terra Viva Grants welcomes organizations and individuals who will use the site and mention its availability to colleagues. We also welcome links to our website to make it more visible in the world of internet.
