Since 1999, Colorado Open Lands has offered a fellowship program to outstanding recent graduates of advanced degree programs who wish to dedicate their careers to the protection of land and water. To date, we have graduated 46 fellows, and have one currently working in the field.
Colorado Open Lands funds these two-year positions and provides training and real-world experience that equip each Fellow to continue their conservation careers and become the next generation of industry leaders.

The Fellowship program is funded with generous support from local and national foundations and private individuals.

Johnson Foundation, New-Land Foundation, Stryker Short Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation, among others.
