Dear all,

This message to announce that applications are 
now being considered for the 2016 Chagos 
Conservation Trust U.S. (CCT-US) Expedition Scholarship.

For application criteria, expectations and other 
specifics, please see the online announcement 
posted on the CCT-US website, here: 

Under the auspices of its annual Expedition 
Scholarship, the CCT-US seeks to fund a US-based 
invasive plant management specialist to 
participate on the Chagos Atoll Restoration 
Expedition (CAREX) which will be of one month duration in August, 2016.

Like all expedition participants, the successful 
candidate will be expected to contribute their 
relevant expertise to the Terrestrial Action Plan 
being developed for the outer islands of the British Indian Ocean Territory.

Interviews will commence upon receipt of
