We will be announcing the 2019 Fellows soon. Stay tuned!
WFI’s team of International Fellows is selectively chosen from the forestry profession around the globe. In a program unique to the industry, these Fellows serve six-month Fellowships at WFI, using a wide range of skills, expertise, and language abilities to complete an independent project. Fellows participate in the program through the U. S Department of State’s Visa Exchange Visitor Program. The purpose of the Exchange Visitor Program is to promote mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries through educational and cultural exchanges. The WFI Fellows learn about sustainable forestry in Oregon and carry that knowledge forward globally, promoting best practices when they return home.
