Earthwatch Educator Fellowships Available to Sponsor
Participation in International and U.S. Conservation
Expeditions

Deadline: Rolling

The Earthwatch Institute ( http://www.earthwatch.org/ ) and its partners offer a number of Educator Fellowships every year to elementary, middle, and high school educators and administrators.

Earthwatch seeks adventurous, innovative science educators who have an interest in conservation, sustainability, and life-long learning. Participating educators work alongside leading field scientists on some of the most important environmental issues facing the planet today, like climate change and biodiversity.
Educators may help an endangered species, unearth an ancient society, or protect threatened habitats.

Applications are considered based on available funding in the applicant's geographic region, financial need, and the benefits that would result from participating on an Earthwatch expedition.
Fellows are assigned to projects according to their interests, skills, availability, project need, and grant restrictions.

Fellowships cover participants' on-site expedition costs, which include the support of the scientific research, food, accommoda- tions, on-site travel, and all the various costs of fieldwork (permits, equipment, etc.). Certain awards also offer reimburse- ment for travel expenses associated with getting to the project site and back.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis during the school year. Applications received by March have the best chances at being funded.

(Note: This program requires an application fee of $35, which includes a free year of Earthwatch membership.)

Visit the Earthwatch Web site for a list of available fellow- ships and application procedures and deadlines.
