The Natural Environment Foundation (NEF) Scholarship Programmes offers financial supports to those students who are willing to study the subjects related to the natural environment but not have enough financial resources for university level studies.

The NEF aims to develop human resources in developing countries of Southeast Asia who understand natural science and intend to work in the field of the nature conservation in the future. The programmes do not offer any supports for studying abroad.

From 1991 to April 2016, the NEF has supported a total of 4,853 students in eight countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Currently scholarships are provided for students in Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar, Vietnam, Lao PDR, and Cambodia with the cooperation of the NEF’s local counterparts.
