To celebrate Dr. Kleiman’s lifetime contributions to wildlife conservation and local capacity building in Brazil, ZCOG created the Devra G. Kleiman Memorial Scholarship for Wildlife Conservation, which provides annual scholarship funding to help support the participation of Brazilian zoo and aquarium personnel in professional training courses offered by the Association of Zoos & Aquarium’s (AZA).  The scholarship is funded through ZCOG’s Devra G. Kleiman Memorial Trust for Wildlife Conservation.

The Devra G. Kleiman Memorial Scholarship for Wildlife Conservation is managed by Zoo Conservation Outreach Group (ZCOG) and may be applied towards any AZA Professional Training Program course during the upcoming program year.
