Supporting Innovative Research for Conservation


We are currently not accepting any more fellowship applications at this time. Please check back at a later date.


The Greg Gund Memorial Fellowship program provides funding for research promoting science-based conservation in the Osa Peninsula. These fellowships are provided through the generous support of Theo Gund, mother of the late Greg Gund and ongoing supporter of conservation in the Osa.

Fellowships range from $2,000-$5,000 and are intended for master’s or doctoral students or established researchers. Grants are generally provided to support 1-4 months of fieldwork, including transportation, living expenses and equipment. Long-term projects using these grants as seed money are also encouraged.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to conduct their research on Osa Conservation’s properties or in areas where Osa Conservation has active projects and programs.

Fellowship Deliverables

Greg Gund Fellows are required to submit both a preliminary and final report to Osa Conservation. Fellows may be asked to present their research and findings at Osa Conservation’s bi-annual science meeting and/or to visitors at our facilities in the Osa.
