Chirag Roy Memorial Scholarship 2016



The Creative Conservation Alliance announce the Chirag Roy Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship aims to provide the opportunity for two Bangladeshi students to attend the 2016 Bangladesh Python Project (BPP) Workshop. The receivers of this scholarship will be awarded 11 days, free of charge, to attend the Lawachara National Park segment of the BPP workshop. From July 11th through July 21st you will be radio-tracking pythons and tortoises, surveying for wildlife day and night, learning how to execute research projects, and how to be involved with conservation. You will also be mingling with other naturalists, photographers, and researchers from around the world who will be attending the workshop alongside you.

This memorial scholarship is dedicated to the late Chirag Roy – Conservationist, photographer, friend.

Chirag played a critical role in establishing this workshop and turning a passing idea into a reality. He tirelessly dedicated his life to the conservation of our world’s biodiversity and the betterment of all around him. By involving future conservationists such as yourself to carry out his unfinished work, Chirag’s vision will live on forever.


Applicant must be currently enrolled as a student attending a university within Bangladesh with the intention of pursuing a career in wildlife biology or conservation. Equal opportunity will be given to all ages, ethnicity, faiths, and genders.

Application period is open until June 23rd. Results will be announced by early July.
