The Andrew Sabin Family Foundation created the Sabin Fellowship program at Yale F&ES in 2011 to provide scholarship support for students from developing countries, and to provide additional post-graduate awards to those students returning to their home countries and regions to pursue environmental careers. Since 2011, the Andrew Sabin Foundation has supported 26 Sabin Fellows, all graduate students attending the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
Sabin Fellows are eligible to receive tuition assistance up to $20,000 and another $20,000 in post-graduation awards. The post-graduation award is contingent on the Fellow's return to her/his native country or region within eighteen months of graduation and service in the environmental sector for at least twelve months.
Sabin Fellows must commit to live and work in a developing country for a GO, NGO, or private firm engaged in environmental work. Fellows are also required to provide a written update on their professional careers to F&ES annually for five years after graduation.
Applicants must be first-year non-joint degree Master's students in F&ES. Applicants must be nationals of less-developed countries, with a preference for Africa, Asia (including India and China), and Central and South America. Fellowships will be awarded based on merit and need as determined by the selection committee.
