Applications for 2017 Fellowships are now closed.

Professional Fellowships were available for professionals from across Oceania who have an abstract (oral or poster) accepted, but were without financial or institutional support to participate in the Forum. Professionals from the following nations were considered for this Fellowship (in alphabetical order): American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, French Polynesia, Guam, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia (Fed States), Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, North Mariana Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Pitcairn Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Vanuatu, West Papua (Indonesia). Applications from professionals in other nations within Oceania and the Asia Pacific were considered if of special circumstance. Professionals could be of any age, but they must be working in one of the key ecosystem services areas the Forum focuses on.

Fellowships were awarded based on a) the quality and relevance of the abstract to the themes of the Forum; and b) the benefit of the Fellowship to the applicant. Depending on the needs of the applicant and available funding, funding was offered for travel to and from the Forum, accommodation during the Forum, registration, or for the full travel package. Applications closed Monday 19th December 2016; applicants were notified of the outcome the same day.
