International Visiting Scholars Program

As part of ELI’s mission to foster and empower a new generation of environmental professionals abroad, the International Visiting Scholars Program hosts promising young environmental lawyers, economists, and scientists from other countries at ELI to collaborate with our staff in Washington. Individual scholars are typically in residence at the Institute for periods of one to three months, with some staying for a year or more.

J. William Futrell Fund for International Visiting Scholars

The Fund honors J. William “Bill” Futrell’s career-long dedication to conservation and recognizes his 23 years of achievement as ELI President concluding in 2003. Under Bill Futrell’s direction, ELI became a global leader protecting our environment through law, policy and management. Bill Futrell engaged an extensive network of environmental professionals throughout the world, making ELI a leading presence in global discussions of sustainable development, for example at the Rio Earth Summit (1992) and the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development (2002).
