I am writing to inform you that American Rivers is accepting applications for the 2021-2023 Anthony A. Lapham River Conservation Fellowship. The Lapham Fellowship was established in 2008 in honor of the memory of Anthony Lapham, lifelong champion for rivers and former chairman of the American Rivers’ Board of Directors.

The Fellowship gives talented post-graduates the opportunity to engage in relevant research and work in the field of river conservation over the course of the two year fellowship (full time with a stipend is provided). For example, our current Lapham Fellow is helping to develop an American Rivers’ Water Justice Legal Toolkit.  The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work with American Rivers staff to develop their scope of work focused on advancing conservation policy.

If you know any exceptional postgraduates interested in contributing to American Rivers’ conservation work, please direct them to the Lapham Fellow posting on American Rivers’ website.

Any further questions can be directed to lapham@americanrivers.org.
